##Background dd is a command line tool to do byte-exact copy.

##Purpose dd-gui is a simple GUI wrapper to enable you to easily launch dd without resorting to the command line. It will also show progress information throughout the copy.

##Usage Both source and destination can be either a system device from /dev or a file with the extension .img, for example: /dev/disk4, /files/dd.img

The app has only been tested on Mac OS 10.6.x

##Warning If you choose the wrong device as the destination, you can erase important data! Proceed with caution.

##Changelog 2013-11-04: Added sudo to fix permissions issue on Mac OS 10.9 Mavericks (0.22)
2009-09-17: Added option to list devices (0.21)
2009-09-16: Added automatic unmounting and mounting of devices, plus more robust determination of source size (0.20)
2009-09-07: Initial release (0.10)

##Future versions I may add support for all dd features, just like Air Imager on Linux.
