LIFDUMP Manual Page
lifdump - dump a LIF disk image to a physical LIF disk
lifdump <input file> <output device>
lifdump <output device>
(Reads input from standard input)
lifdump reads a LIF disk image file, as produced by lifimage
and writes it to a pre-formatted LIF disk. The original
contents of the disk (and the directory) are overwritten by
this command and are thus lost. If lifdump is executed with
2 arguments, then the contents of the file named by the
first argument are written to the device specified by the
second argument. If it is executed with one argument, then
the standard input stream is written to the device specified
by that argument.
The disk must have already been formatted as an HP LIF disk,
for example using a series 40 or series 70 machine and an
HP9114 disk drive.
See comments in the lifimage source code for details of the
image file format.
If the file disk1.lif contains a LIF disk image then
lifdump disk1.lif /dev/fd1
will dump that file to a preformatted disk in device
No attempt has been made to handle bad track replacements.
