       mmls - Display the partition layout of a volume system  (partition tables)


       mmls  [-t  mmtype ] [-o offset ] [ -i imgtype ] [-b dev_sector_size] [-BrvV] [-aAmM] image


       mmls displays the layout of the partitions in a volume  system,  which  include  partition
       tables and disk labels.


       -t mmtype
              Specify  the  media management type.  Use '-t list' to list the supported types. If
              not given, autodetection methods are used.

       -o offset
              Specify the offset into the image where the volume containing the partition  system
              starts.  The relative offset of the partition system will be added to this value.

       -b dev_sector_size
              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.

       -i imgtype
              Identify the type of image file, such as raw or split.  If not given, autodetection
              methods are used.

       -B     Include a column with the partition sizes in bytes

       -r     Recurse  into  DOS  partitions  and  look  for  other partition tables.  This setup
              frequently occurs when Unix is installed on x86 systems.

       -v     Verbose output of debugging statements to stderr

       -V     Display version

       -a     Show allocated volumes

       -A     Show unallocated volumes

       -m     Show metadata volumes

       -M     Hide metadata volumes

       image [images]
              One (or more if split) disk images whose format is given with '-i'.

       ´mmls´ is similar to 'fdisk -lu' in Linux with a few differences.  Namely,  it  will  show
       which  sectors  are not being used so that those can be searched for hidden data.  It also
       gives the length value so that it can be plugged into 'dd' more easily for extracting  the
       partitions.  It also will show BSD disk labels for Free, Open, and NetBSD and will display
       the output in sectors and not cylinders.  Lastly, it works on non-Linux systems.

       If none of -a, -A, -m, or -M are given then all volume types will be listed.   If  any  of
       them are given, then only the types specified on the command line will be listed.

       Allocated  volumes are those that are listed in a partition table in the volume system AND
       can store data.  Unallocated volumes are virtually created  by  mmls  to  show  you  which
       sectors  have  not been allocated to a volume.  The metadata volumes overlap the allocated
       and unallocated volumes and  describe  where  the  partition  tables  and  other  metadata
       structures  are  located.  In some volume systems, these structures are in allocated space
       and in others they are in unallocated space.  In some volume systems,  their  location  is
       explicitly given in the partition tables and in others they are not.


       To list the partition table of a Windows system using autodetect:

       # mmls disk_image.dd

       To list the contents of a BSD system that starts in sector 12345 of a split image:

       # mmls -t bsd -o 12345 -i split disk-1.dd disk-2.dd
