NTFSCAT(8)                  System Manager's Manual                 NTFSCAT(8)



NAME
       ntfscat - concatenate files and print them on the standard output

SYNOPSIS
       ntfscat [ options ] device file

DESCRIPTION
       ntfscat  will  read a file from an NTFS volume and display the contents
       on the standard output.

       The case of the filename passed to ntfscat is ignored.

OPTIONS
       Below is a summary of  all  the  options  that  ntfscat  accepts.   All
       options have two equivalent names.  The short name is preceded by - and
       the long name is preceded by --.  Any single letter options, that don't
       take  an  argument, can be combined into a single command, e.g.  -fv is
       equivalent to -f -v.  Long named options  can  be  abbreviated  to  any
       unique prefix of their name.

       -f
       --force
              This  will  override some sensible defaults, such as not working
              with a mounted volume.  Use this option with caution.

       -h
       --help Show a list of options with a brief description of each one.

       -q
       --quiet
              Suppress some debug/warning/error messages.

       -V
       --version
              Show the version number, copyright and license ntfscat.

       -v
       --vebose
              Display more debug/warning/error messages.

EXAMPLES
       Display the contents of a file in the root of an NTFS volume.

              ntfscat /dev/hda1 boot.ini

       Display the contents of a file in a subdirectory of an NTFS volume.

              ntfscat /dev/hda1 /winnt/system32/drivers/etc/hosts

BUGS
       ntfscat was written in a short time, to get something "out there".   It
       needs  a  lot more work.  If you find any bugs, please send an email to
       <linux-ntfs-devATlists.net>
