       bximage  - Interactive Disk Image Creation, Conversion, Resize and Redolog Commit Tool for


       bximage [options] [filename1] [filename2]


       Bximage is an easy to use console based tool for creating, converting  and  resizing  disk
       images,  particularly  for  use with Bochs. It also  supports committing  redolog files to
       their  base images.  It is  completely  interactive  if no  command  line   arguments  are
       used.   It can be switched to a non-interactive mode  if all required parameters are given
       in the command line.


       When you  run  bximage  without  one  of  the  following  options,  it  will   appear   in
       interactive  mode and  ask   for  all required parameters to manipulate an image.

              Operation to perform (create, convert, resize, commit, info)

              Create: floppy image with size code (e.g. 360k, 720k, 1.44M)

              Create/resize: hard disk image with size in megabytes (M) or gigabytes (G)

              Create/convert:  hard  disk  image  mode  -  see  the  bochsrc sample for supported

       -b     Convert/resize: create a backup of the source image. Commit: create backups of base
              image and redolog file.

       -q     Quiet   mode  (don't  prompt  for user input). Without this option bximage uses the
              command  line parameters as defaults for the interactive mode. If  this  option  is
              given  and  one  of  the  required parameters is missing, bximage will fall back to
              interactive mode.

       --help Print  a  summary  of  the command line options for bximage and exit.

       The filename1 parameter specifies the name of the new image  (create),  the  source  image
       (convert/resize) or the base image (commit).

       The  filename2  parameter  specifies the name of the destination image (convert/resize) or
       the redolog (journal) file (commit).
