GNU Parted

https://www.gnu.org/software/parted/
Manipulates disk partitions

Parted is a program that allows you to create, destroy, resize, move, and copy hard disk partitions. This is useful for creating space for new operating systems, reorganizing disk usage, and copying data to new hard disks. The program currently supports ext2, ext3, and FAT (FAT16 and FAT32) filesystems and Linux swap devices, and MS-DOS disk labels.

GNU Parted contains a library, libparted, and a command-line frontend, parted, which also serves as a sample implementation and script backend.
