Summary:                    Can dd redirect the output to a pipe?
Description: 
It wanted to know if the command dd can redirect the exit towards a pipe
since he does dd standard. I am using this command: 

dd if=file ibs=1b skip=N | tar -tj

But it throws the aid to me of dd as if the commando had written badly.
With dd standard it works perfectly.
Thanks for any help

There is no "ibs=" option, try "bs=" instead.

of= defaults to stdout and works as expected.

Unsupported ibs= is not a bug, redirecting to stdout/pipe works ok.
