See BLT.

repartition: See partition. Repartitioning is the process of changing the size and sequence of partitions on a disk.

Apparently there is a repartition command in Irix (a variant of Unix) which uploads a new partition table for the partitions of a device. See appendix A of an Irix manual: http://www.mcc.ac.uk/cos/unix/Irix/course/6.5update/appendix-a.html. AFAICT, there is no similar command in Linux.

The syntax is:

repartition [<partition-file>] [<device>] <rhk note: I made this up from the definition below -- need to check, especially the order.>

The table is obtained from the first sector of partition-file if given. Device may refer to the whole drive or a primary partition, depending on whether you want to upload a partition or a subpartition table. The partitions will be truncated to fit in the enclosing device like the diskdriver does unless the numbers are coming from partition-file.
