Yes, the size of the change is far larger than the program itself.

It makes sense to contribute some hundred lines to a big project like gcc or linux. But Diaz's dd_rescue does the same job (with better integration) that Garloff's dd_rescue + dd_rhelp, and is one order of magnitude smaller.

Would you accept such a change to your program and still call it _your_ program?

Hmm, it is normally considered best if improvements are

contributed back to the original program. Any specific reason

why this can't be done here?

Re: Deją vue
probably none of my business; but there is having many people making programs that do the same thing, and then there is using virtually the exact same name. things like this make for confusion.

No, there is not. Simply this is my own version of dd_rescue (as there are many versions of every *nix tool out there).

It should have been released months ago, but I am yet waiting for Savannah.
