NAME ^

prodos - Manipulate Apple II ProDOS disk image files

SYNOPSIS ^

prodos IMAGE-FILE

DESCRIPTION ^

prodos provides a Unix/MS-DOS style command-line shell for manipulating the contents of a disk image file containing an Apple II ProDOS volume.

COMMANDS ^

cd PATH

Change the current directory on the ProDOS volume to PATH. Use lcd to change the directory on the native filesystem.

dir, ls, ll, or v

List the contents of the current directory on the ProDOS volume.

get FILE

Copy FILE from the ProDOS volume to the native filesystem.

lcd PATH

Change the current directory on the native filesystem to PATH. Use cd to change the directory on the ProDOS volume.

mkdir DIRECTORY

Create a new subdirectory on the ProDOS volume. You can use md as an alias to mkdir.

put FILE

Copy FILE from the native filesystem to the ProDOS volume.

pwd

List the name of the current directory on the ProDOS volume.

quit

Exit prodos.

type FILE

Display the contents of FILE, which should be a text file.

!

Start a subshell.

DEPENDENCIES ^

prodos requires Term::ReadLine, which is now distributed with Perl. For best results, you should also have Term::ReadLine::Gnu or Term::ReadLine::Perl, which are available on CPAN.

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

CONFIGURATION AND ENVIRONMENT ^

 PAGER  The pager to use for long displays
 SHELL  The shell to start with the ! command

BUGS AND LIMITATIONS ^

prodos doesn't have a cat command, because under ProDOS that means dir and under Unix it means type. To avoid confusion, I left it out.
