Article #382 (419 is last): From: xx004@cleveland.Freenet.Edu (Atari SIG) Newsgroups: freenet.sci.comp.atari.questions,freenet.sci.comp.atari.spec.8bit Subject: Mule program Reply-To: as195@cleveland.Freenet.Edu (Joseph Pallendino) Date: Sat Jan 8 19:58:55 1994 Reply-to: as195@cleveland.Freenet.Edu.I.downloaded.a.program.from.the.Atari.Archive.called.mule.arc.It.is (Joseph Pallendino) supposed to convert an Atari program to IBM. The program unarced ok and a program called mule.com appeared. I tried loading mule.com from DOS 2.5 Binary Load but the computer locked up. If you have time could you please tell me how to run it. My program is a Basic and I'm under the impression that mule.com is the only program that I need but I have Action Cartridge and C Compiler if these are needed. Thanks. **** Answered by Michael Current, aa700: Mule is a package that will allow you to copy files between Atari and MS-DOS systems. It requires a disk and drive capable of enhanced density on the Atari end. Mule.com runs on the Atari, while mule.exe runs under MS-DOS. The mule.arc contains mule.com, plus the source code to both mule.com (in Action!) and mule.exe (in Turbo C). Mule.exe is a separate file on the Archive, plus there is also a third file called mule.txt that describes the package. Hopefully that'll help you, because I have no experience using Mule, does anyone else?
