Dear list, before starting to code on my own, I'd like to ask if there's already a tool to uncat files, defining the file separation position as a string of bytes, usually given in hexadecimal form.
An example could be this: % uncat -p 0x12,0x52,0xf1,0x09 file_orig It creates file_1 file_2 file_3. And, of course, % cat file_1 file_2 file_3 > file_orig would re-create the original file. The bytes 0x12,0x52,0xf1,0x09 tell the file starting pattern (-p), where a new file begins. I cannot use dd due to the fact that the files concatenated are of a different size. So the idea would be to look for specific byte pattern and then start a new file each time it occurs on input. Is there such a tool, or any other ideas? -- Polytropon >From Magdeburg, Germany Happy FreeBSD user since 4.0 Andra moi ennepe, Mousa, ... _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
