c1541 — a stand alone disk image maintenance program


c1541 [options] [image]


c1541 is a stand alone program that can be used for D64, D71, D81, X64 and G64 disk image file maintenance. It is part of the VICE emulator.

c1541 can be used both in interactive and batch mode. It will start in interactive mode if no images and no options are specified or if one image is specified; when started in interactive mode, command line editing and command history are available.

Each command line option for use in batch mode has an interactive mode counterpart, that is shown in parenthesis.

-attach image (attach image)
attach image for use. All consequent commands in interactive mode will refer to this image.
-detach image (detach image)
detach image from c1541.
-format image (format image 'name,id')
format the disk image image with the specified label. image is created if it does not exist.
-delete image files... (delete files...)

-list image (list)

-validate image (validate)

-copy image oldname1 [oldname2...] newname (copy oldname1 [oldname2...] newname)
concatenate oldname1, oldname2... into newname on image (can be used to copy files).
-create image dump ['descr'] (create image dump ['descr']
build image from raw dump file dump (i.e. convert from D64 to X64 file).
-tape image tapeimage [files...] (tape image tapeimage [files...])
transfer files from tapeimage to image (default is all files).
-read image 1541name [fsname] (read 1541name [fsname])
extract 1541name from the disk image into fsname (1541name by default) from image.
-extract image (extract).
extract all files from image.
-write image fsname [1541name] (write fsname [1541name])

-block [drive:] [track] [sector] [disp] (block [drive:] [track] [sector] [disp])

-info image ['descr'] (info ['descr'])

When more than one command is specified in batch mode, all of them are executed in the same order they have on the command line.
