       fragiso  -  split rpm packages from an iso and reassemble the iso later


       fragiso make iso fiso
       fragiso list fiso
       fragiso fill [-m] fiso iso


       fragiso can be used to convert an iso file into a fragment file,  which
       is  a  list  describing  all  of  the  rpms on the iso and a data chunk
       containing everything but the rpms. It is used by drpmsync when an  iso
       needs to be transferred. The idea is that often the rpms on the iso are
       already available on the destination host, so  it  saves  bandwidth  to
       first  transfer  the  fragmented  iso, copy the locally available rpms,
       transfer the unavailable rpms and reassemble the iso file.

       fragiso make converts the iso into the fragment iso, fragiso  list  can
       be  used  to  extract the rpm information. This information consists of
       the offset and length of all rpms and the lead/signature header  md5sum
       plus  the  header/payload md5sum. To reassemble the iso one has to copy
       the rpms at the right offset into a new file and then use fragiso  fill
       later  on  to provide all data not contained in the rpms. The -m option
       tells fragiso to print the resulting md5sum of the iso to  stdout.   It
       can be used for verification purposes.
