GNU ddrescue is a data recovery tool. It copies data from one file or block device (hard disc, cdrom, etc) to another, trying to rescue the good parts first in case of read errors.

Ddrescuelog is a tool that manipulates ddrescue mapfiles, shows mapfile contents, converts mapfiles to/from other formats, compares mapfiles, tests rescue status, and can delete a mapfile if the rescue is done.

Changes in this version:

* A deadlock in command mode when stdout is fully buffered has been fixed by flushing stdout after executing each command. (Reported by Jeffrey Bosboom).

  * A missing '#include <cstdlib>' has been added.

  * The option synonym '--direct' has been removed and is no longer recognized.

Antonio Diaz, GNU ddrescue author and maintainer.
