outputs the contents of a specific volume to stdout. This allows you to
extract the contents of a partition to a separate file.
.IP "-t mmtype"
Specify the media management type.
Use '\-t list' to list the supported types.
If not given, autodetection methods are used.
.IP "-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.
.IP "-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.
.IP "-i imgtype"
Identify the type of image file, such as raw.
Use '\-i list' to list the supported types.
If not given, autodetection methods are used.
.IP -v
Verbose output of debugging statements to stderr
.IP -V
Display version
.IP "image [images]"
The disk or partition image to read, whose format is given with '\-i'.
Multiple image file names can be given if the image is split into multiple segments.
If only one image file is given, and its name is the first in a sequence (e.g., as indicated by ending in '.001'), subsequent image segments will be included automatically.
.IP "part_num"
Address of partition to process. See the mmls output to determine the address of the partitions.
