Name        : dc3dd
Product     : Fedora 10
Version     : 6.12.2
Release     : 3.fc10
URL         : http://dc3dd.sourceforge.net/
Summary     : Patched version of GNU dd for use in computer forensics
Description :
dc3dd is a patched version of GNU dd to include a number of features useful
for computer forensics. Many of these features were inspired by dcfldd, but
were rewritten for dc3dd.

    * Pattern writes. The program can write a single hexadecimal value or a
    text string to the output device for wiping purposes.
    * Piecewise and overall hashing with multiple algorithms and variable
    size windows. Supports MD5, SHA-1, SHA-256, and SHA-512. Hashes can be
    computed before or after conversions are made.
    * Progress meter with automatic input/output file size probing
    * Combined log for hashes and errors
    * Error grouping. Produces one error message for identical sequential
    errors
    * Verify mode. Able to repeat any transformations done to the input
    file and compare it to an output.
    * Ability to split the output into chunks with numerical or alphabetic
    extensions
