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:

* Diagnostics caused by invalid arguments to command line options now show the argument and the name of the option.

  * 'long long' is now used instead of 'long' for time variables.
