I'm developing a utility that needs to do low-level random access of disks (read individual sectors). In Linux I accomplish this by accessing the corresponding block device (e.g.
/dev/sda). However, I've just installed FreeBSD, and I noticed that it doesn't have block devices. Instead, disks appear as character devices, which don't allow random "seeking".
Is there a way to accomplish this in FreeBSD? (i.e. low-level random access)
