FCAT(1) General Commands Manual FCAT(1)

fcat - Output the contents of a file based on its name.

fcat [-hRsvV] [-f fstype ] [-i imgtype ] [-o imgoffset ] [-b dev_sector_size] path_of_file image [images]

fcat opens the named image(s) and copies the file at the path path_of_file to standard output.

Specifies the file system type. Use '-f list' to list the supported file system types. If not given, autodetection methods are used.
Skip over holes in sparse files, so that absolute address information is lost. This option saves space when copying sparse files.
Supress errors if a deleted file is being recovered.
Include the slack space in the output.
Identify the type of image file, such as raw. Use '-i list' to list the supported types. If not given, autodetection methods are used.
The sector offset where the file system starts in the image.
The size, in bytes, of the underlying device sectors. If not given, the value in the image format is used (if it exists) or 512-bytes is assumed.
Enable verbose mode, output to stderr.
Display version
The disk or partition image to read, whose format is given with '-i'. Multiple image file names can be given if the image is split into multiple segments. If only one image file is given, and its name is the first in a sequence (e.g., as indicated by ending in '.001'), subsequent image segments will be included automatically.
Path of file to extract the contents of. Surround the path in quotes if there is a space in a file or directory name. Use forward slashes.
