       Dskid is a utility which will identify how a disc (or image) is formatted. It reports  the
       required driver and various information about the disc geometry.


       -type TYPE
              Determines which driver is to be used.

              auto    Select according to the disc image file. This is the default.

       -retry COUNT
              Set the number of times to attempt to read the disc in case of error.

       -comp COMP
              Select  the  compression  method  used on the source disc image file (has no effect
              when reading a floppy disc).

              auto    Detect from the first few bytes of the file. This is the default.

              sq      Huffman coded (SQ / USQ).

              gz      Gzipped (gzip / gunzip).

              bz2     Burrows-Wheeler compressed (bzip2 / bunzip2).
