Device evaluator and disk image copier for GNU/Linux


xorriso-dd-target is a command-line tool to evaluate block devices of the Linux kernel whether they are suitable targets for a disk image file and to optionally copy the image file to one of them. It is specialized on the device names of the Linux kernel and uses the capabilities of util-linux program lsblk. Therefore it refuses to run on non-Linux kernels.

The main purpose of xorriso-dd-target is to inspect the device files of disk-like storage media and to judge whether they look like removable devices with disposable content. If a single plausible candidate is detected, then the program is willing to copy a disk image file onto it. This will overwrite or make inaccessible the previous partition table and all previous data content of the target device.
