NAME dkscan_bsdlabel — program to create wedges from a BSD disklabel

The following options are supported:
No execution - list the wedges, but do not create them.
Be more verbose - print additional information.
The argument device
specifices the disk on which the disklabel is scanned and to which the wedges are added.
dkscan_bsdlabel -v wd1
Create wedges from all recognized partitions on wd1
HISTORY The dkscan_bsdlabel command first appeared in NetBSD 5.0.
AUTHORS Martin Huseman wrote the dkscan_bsdlabel utility. It is reusing a lot of kernel code written by Jason R. Thorpe.
