- Update to 7.1.0

2011-03-02 Richard Cordovano <>

        * Added the ability to specify log= and hlog= more than once.
        * Added phod= and fhod= options. For an output that is a device, using phod= ("partially hashed output device")
        causes dc3dd to compute hashes of only the bytes dc3dd wrote to the output device. If fhod= 
        ("fully hashed output device") is specified instead, dc3dd will compute hashes of both the bytes dc3dd wrote 
        and of the entire device.

- update to 6.12.4-r458

2009-08-28 Richard Cordovano <>

        * Replaced the byte-by-byte verification capability with a verification capability that
     hashes imaging outputs and compares the hashes to the input hash. The new verification capability
     does not require a second read of the device.
        * Enhanced the ability to generate multiple outputs by adding the capability to combine split and unsplit
        * Added the ability for the user to specify a sector size via the command line.
        * Added display/logging of results of device size probes. Size probes are now always performed, providing
     run statistics in most use cases (reading from standard input excepted). 
        * Added display/logging of size statistics for each file in an input or output split.
        * Simplified the command line options and removed all legacy dd features not needed for imaging. The simplified
     command line is more rigorously validated to reduce the likelihood of performing a run contrary to user 
     intent in order to avoid a second read of a device.
        * Removed the progress=on command line option and the cumbersome INFO signaling protocol for 
     obtaining a progress report. Instead, a progress bar is always displayed.
        * Added new DEFAULT_IMAGING_MODE compile flag support (equivalent to command line options:
     recovererrs=on, grouperrs=on, idirect=on).
        * Reduced the use of global variables from 71 to 9, reduced function lengths, and
     removed several instances of code duplication. 
        * Introduced a program architecture that replaces a single loop with a jobs abstraction, allowing execution
     of an arbitrary chain of jobs, each composed of one or more tasks that execute in parallel. The new
     program architecture is designed to allow for the transparent addition of multi-step processing
     scenarios such as the new verification capability.
