SYNOPSIS

cdcat [ -d, --device=PATH ] [ -h, --help ] [ -p, --prefix=NAME ] [ -t, --test ] [ -V, --version ]

OPTIONS

-d, --device=PATH
  Use the specified CD-ROM device. The default is /dev/cdrom.
-h, --help
  Show usage message and quit.
-p, --prefix=NAME
  Specify the filename prefix as used on the CD images. The default value (’’) normally works fine. The first CD is always searched for files matching the shell pattern NAME*. If multiple matches are found, the user is prompted to choose one of them. If the selected file ends with ’.1’, then the backup is assumed to be multidisk.
-t, --test
  Do not use the CD-ROM drive. In this mode, everything proceeds normally, except that the backup files are searched for in the current directory, rather than on CD-ROMs. The CD-ROM drive is never actually mounted or unmounted.
-V, --version
  Print the version number and exit.

DESCRIPTION

This manual page documents briefly the cdcat filesystem restore utility.

CDCat concatenates components of a filesystem backup from one or more CD-ROMs, and writes its output to STDOUT. It is used as an interactive front-end for cdrstr (1).
