NAME

       raw2hdf - Create an .hdf hard disk image from a raw data file

SYNOPSIS

       raw2hdf rawfile hdffile

DESCRIPTION

       raw2hdf converts a binary dump of a hard disk's data into an IDE disk image in .hdf format
       for use with Sinclair ZX Spectrum emulators.

OPTIONS

       -v version
              specifies the version of .hdf image to be created. Valid values  are  `1.0'  for  a
              version 1.0 file and `1.1' for a version 1.1 file. Defaults to creating version 1.1
              files.

       rawfile
              specifies a raw data file (or block device corresponding to an actual disk)  to  be
              converted.

       hdffile
              specifies the .hdf file to create.

NOTES

       Since  raw2hdf  has no knowledge of the geometry of the disk from which the original image
       was taken (indeed, the input file need not originate from a real IDE disk at  all),  there
       is  no  guarantee  that  the  information  contained  in  the  .hdf file header accurately
       represents the original disk. However, it will attempt  to  construct  a  header  that  is
       consistent  with  the  size  of  the  image, to produce an .hdf file which is functionally
       equivalent.

BUGS

       None known.
