SYNOPSIS

        ec2dsnap ([ec2-describe-snapshots])
        ec2dsnap [GENERAL OPTIONS] [SNAPSHOT [...]] [-a] [-o OWNER [...]] [-r USER [...]]

GENERAL NOTES

        Any command option/parameter may be passed a value of '-' to indicate

DESCRIPTION

        List and describe previously created snapshots and snapshots for which
        you have CreateVolume permissions. The SNAPSHOT parameters, if specified,
        list specific snapshot(s) to be described.
         If no parameters are specified, all snapshots owned by you or
        explicitely shared with you, are described.
         With parameters, the result set is the intersection of the snapshots
        explicitely named, the snapshots owned by the specified owner(s), and
        the snapshots with CreateVolume permissions as specified.
        Examples:
         -o        -r              returns
