NAME ^

pro_fmt - Create a blank Apple II ProDOS disk image file

SYNOPSIS ^

pro_fmt [options] FILE

DESCRIPTION ^

pro_fmt creates blank ProDOS disk images. The images are NOT bootable, because they lack the necessary code in the boot blocks, unless you use the "--boot-from" option to copy the boot blocks from a bootable disk image.

Note that some emulators cannot deal with image files that are smaller than their nominal size. That is, they expect a 280 block disk image file to be 143,360 bytes long. Always use the "--extend" option when creating image files for such emulators.

OPTIONS ^

 -b, --boot-from=FILE  Copy boot blocks from disk image FILE
 -e, --extend          Extend FILE to its maximum size
 -f, --force           Overwrite an existing file
 -d, --dos-order       Make a DOS 3.3-order image file
 -p, --prodos-order    Make a ProDOS-order image file
 -s, --size=BLOCKS     Make the image BLOCKS blocks in size
                         (default 280)
 -v, --volume=NAME     Use NAME for the ProDOS volume name
                         (default NEWDISK)
     --help            Display this help message
     --version         Display version information

DEPENDENCIES ^

pro_fmt requires the modules AppleII::ProDOS and AppleII::Disk, which are included with LibA2.
