Thanks, I will try this.

This should work fine. There's a few things to be aware of:

- The skip= option applies to the _input_
- The seek= option applies to the _output_
- The units for skip= is input blocks,
given by ibs= (or bs=, default 512 bytes)
- The units for seek= is output blocks,
given by obs= (or bs=, default 512 bytes)
