general-purpose stream-handling tool similar to dd


cstream is a general-purpose stream-handling tool like UNIX' dd, usually used in commandline-constructed pipes. It has a more traditional command line syntax, support for precise bandwidth limiting and reporting and support for FIFOs. Data limits and throughput rate calculation will work for files > 4 GB.

cstream reads from the standard input and writes to the standard output, if no filenames are given. It will also 'generate' or 'sink' data if desired.
