Thank you for the suggestion.
I have read the manual, including the recovery section. It deals
with the recovery of non-corrupt blocks from a bzip2 archive with
come corrupt blocks. I believe that these bzip2 files are intact,
but as I have no file table on the drive, I have to identify the
length of each archive. I was hoping to identify either a long which
would identify the total number of bytes in the file, or an end of
file marker. I have not found either. I am reviewing the bzip2
source code, but have not found what I am looking for yet.
