Hello, I was wondering if there is any support for skipping an initial
offset in the image file when copying? Much like dd skip=N option?

This could be useful if you want to parse/split an image. A use case I
have would be taking a partition out of a disk image. I do this:

dd bs=512 skip=2048 if=sda.img of=part1.img
