dskconv [-itype TYPE] [-otype TYPE] [-icomp COMP] [-ocomp COMP] [-format FMT] INPUT-IMAGE OUTPUT-IMAGE
Dskconv converts a disc image file from one format to another. Unlike dsktrans(1) it can handle files where different tracks have different sector layouts; however, it cannot handle copying to/from devices that are not disc image files (such as floppy drives or rcpmfs directories). See dsktrans(1) for a more general copy, and dskdump(1) for a slower but more accurate copy which may preserve more of these details.
- -itype TYPE
Determines which driver is to be used to read from the source disc. Some examples are:
Select according to the disc image file. This is the default.
Use the DSK (CPCEmu format) image driver.
Use the extended version of the DSK format.
Use the floppy driver.
(Under Windows 2000 and later) Use Simon Owen's FDRAWCMD floppy driver.
Use the hard disk (MYZ80 format) image driver. (This format cannot be autodetected.)
Use the CFI (DOS fdcopy format) image driver. (This format cannot be autodetected.)
Use the ApriDisk image driver (from the utility of the same name). (This format cannot be autodetected.)
Use the raw driver.
Similar to the raw driver, but the resulting disc image contains tracks laid out in logical filesystem order. Mainly used for imaging discs in formats (such as ADFS) where the mapping of tracks to cylinders/heads does not match the way it's done on the PC.
Sydex's CopyQM format
Sydex's Teledisk format
- -otype TYPE
Determines which driver is to be used to write to the destination disc. The drivers are as for -itype.
- -icomp COMP
Select the compression method used on the source disc image file (has no effect when reading a floppy disc). Use 'none' to disable transparent decompression of gzipped disc images (for example, the Slackware installer rootdisks).
Detect from the first few bytes of the file. This is the default.
Huffman coded (SQ / USQ).
Gzipped (gzip / gunzip).
Burrows-Wheeler compressed (bzip2 / bunzip2).
- -ocomp COMP
Select the compression to be used on output. Compression methods are as for -icomp, except that bz2 cannot be used.
