helper for creating Atari compatible disk images


atari-convert-dir sourcedir targetdir


Copies directories and files from source directory to target directory so that their names are clipped to 8+3 characters in Atari GEMDOS compatible way.  Files on a disk image that is created from the converted target directory, should work as well as with Hatari GEMDOS HD emulation.

This helper is used directly by atari-hd-image tool and its use is also recommended with zip2st tool content (because Mtools mcopy doesn't convert long file names correctly for Atari).
