Hi Atarian(s),

I=B4ve just finished my update of the new DIR2ATR and XDIR
programs, and have updated my homepage accordingly.

DIR2ATR
=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D
Version 5.05.00 lets you turn a pc directory
(or more pc directories in the case of Spartados)
into one or more .ATR or .XFD disk images.
It supports Single, Medium, Enhanced, Double, Quad, 720KB,
1.44 MB and 16 MB disk images.
The following OS-es are supported: Dos 2.5, MyDos 4.53,
BeWeDos 1.30 and SpartaDos 3.3a.
Although the program is designed to accept SpartaDos/X as well,
the bootcode for it is not included in the archive.
The program accepts your own favourite DOS too, just use
the "MY OWN DOS" feature of the program.
Please note that the directories you are converting should
contain Atari XL/XE files and/or text files. Just a reminder.
The update solves a bug with the configuration file,
a command line interface has been added, and the program
has a fast drive switching option now.

XDIR
=3D=3D=3D=3D
Version 10.05 now supports a command line interface as well,
has the fast drive switching option.
A bug concerning a multiple extraction of the same disk image
(which stopped the program), has been solved as well.


So download these new versions, and let me know what you think.
Regards,
Bo Schreurs
