lifimage - make an image of an HP LIF disk


lifimage <input device> <output file> lifimage <input device> (Writes output to standard output)


lifimage reads an HP LIF format 3.5 inch floppy disk and produces an image file. This file can be processed by other LIF utilities or written back to a physical disk using lifdump If lifimage is executed with 2 arguments, then the second argument is used as the filename of the image file. If it is executed with one argument then the file is written to standard output. See comments in the source code for details of the image file format.


If device /dev/fd1 contains an HP LIF disk then lifimage /dev/fd1 disk1.lif will make an image of that disk in the file disk1.lif


No attempt has been made to handle bad track replacements. The first 77 cylinders only of the disk are read.
