Let's say I have TAR file with some partition images (
dd/patclone/partimage/fsarchiver/whatever) and text file with MD5 sums (of image file and original partitions). I don't want to extract the image to disk. I want redirect extracting stream directly to extracting command which would write it on the fly to the partitions.
- Is it possible?
- If so, do such stream from extractor goes straight to such command or is it cached in memory (RAM)?
I know that TAR has
--to-command='COMMAND' but I'm not sure do they redirect stream on the fly or content when its ready in some cache?
