NAME

       dar_cp - 'cp' clone command that is able to copy data located after an I/O error

SYNOPSIS

       dar_cp <source file> <destination file>

       dar_cp -h

       dar_cp -V

DESCRIPTION

       dar_cp  is  similar  to the standard 'cp' command, except it does not stop copying when an
       I/O error is met. Instead, it skips a bit further and continues to copy the  rest  of  the
       file, as much as possible, filling the gaps by zeroed bytes.

       dar_cp only accepts full filename (not directory) as argument. The reason of its existence
       in dar package is that you need it if you use Parchive with dar and have a corruption on a
       CD-R  or  any other read-only medium. You need to copy the corrupted slice on a read-write
       filesystem, for Parchive be able to repair it using slice associated redundancy files.

OPTIONS

       -h                  Displays help usage.

       -V                  Displays version information.

EXIT CODES

       dar_cp exists with the following codes:

       0         upon normal execution (be some corrupted parted skipped or not)

       1         syntax error on command-line

       2         could not open source or destination files

       3         any other system error met during the copy

       5         when some data could not be copied due to I/O error

SIGNALS

       Any signal sent to dar_cp will abort the program immediately, there is no way  to  have  a
       proper termination before the end of the process
