Hello Christian,

ddrescue is also useful for disk read tests with /dev/null as output file.
In this case it is not necessary to require --force, see attached patch.

Well, I don't like exceptions. And the patch needs to be uglier to catch all the ways of naming /dev/null (../dev/null, /dev//null, etc).

I think it is better to pass the -f to ddrescue without exceptions.

Best regards,
