Subject[ANNOUNCE] ddpt, version 0.93 available
ddpt is yet another variant of the venerable Unix dd command
line utility. Some features found in ddpt which are not found
in the current (GNU) dd implementation:

- extended copy (xcopy) support
- SCSI protection (DIF) support
- bandwidth limiting
- write sparing (i.e. don't write buffer if already same
as destination)
- resume (after the copy has been interrupted)
- trim on output of copy, self trim (pt interface only)
- send output to a second file (see 'of2=' option)
- allow access of devices directly via pass-through
interface, bypassing file system
- explicit controls over how much data is read into the
copy buffer and then written to output (separate from
the logical block sizes of any device involved)

For more information and downloads see:
