commands available thru Ranish
- I have the latest copy of the Ranish partition Manager and I want to
use it to do a regular back-up/copy of the current partition in the
desktop and copy it to a secondary plug-in IDE drive.
I am using win2k+SP4 and NTFS.
I used to use the scripting language available with Partition Magic
Pro v7.0 but it sometimes fails to do the job without explanation.
I am thinking of writing a DOS batch program to do the job, using RPM
commands with parameters. However, I see no trace of a copy command
and its necessary format.
Where do I look for a complete list of RPM's command language?
You email me at swameejee at netzero.net if you wish. Thanks again.

from the command line interface, only from the full-screen UI.
Neither are the commands to modify the parameters inside the FAT
partitions; or to change the kind of boot interface (compact or
From what I am recording, Mikhail changed the command-line interface in
v.2.44 to mimic the possibilities of other programs (some DOS-inspired
fdisk, or Ghost's gdisk, or perhaps another one I do not know). However
he just added a different (more user-friendly) way to do the same basic
tasks; and the tasks which have been accessible from command line are
only a subset of RPM 2.4x features.

Perhaps this is documented in the archives of the group.
But I fear there is nothing else.
- I have made up some documentation.
