dkscan_bsdlabel -- program to create wedges from a BSD disklabel
dkscan_bsdlabel [-nv] device
dkscan_bsdlabel scans a disk for a BSD disklabel, which does not need to
be the label variant used on the architecture currently running, or even
the same endianess.
The following options are supported:
-n No execution - list the wedges, but do not create them.
-v Be more verbose - print additional information.
The argument device specifices the disk on which the disklabel is scanned
and to which the wedges are added.
dkscan_bsdlabel -v wd1
Create wedges from all recognized partitions on wd1
dk(4), disklabel(5), dkctl(8)
The dkscan_bsdlabel command first appeared in NetBSD 5.0.
Martin Huseman wrote the dkscan_bsdlabel utility. It is reusing a lot of
kernel code written by Jason R. Thorpe.
