|aftp||[-poirh] disk image ...|
aftp(1) manipulates and browses Apple II disk images. It supports both Apple ][ DOS 3.3, ProDOS and XGS images. Both binary floppy images (.IIE) and hard disk volume (.HDV) images are also supported.
-p use a Prodos filesystem. -o use a Prodos ordered image. -i use an XGS image file. -r load images as read-only. -h display aftp help.
When invoked with a single disk image filename as the first parameter, aftp operates in interactive mode and all of the interactive commands are available. Specifing multiple disk images will display the root directory of each image and then terminate without entering interactive mode.
If you have ever used the unix ftp(1) command, the aftp(1) commands will be very familiar. Interactive commands are:
When putting files in disk images, the following default attributes will be used depending on whether you are transferring in binary or text mode:
dir display disk image directory. ls alias for the dir command. get [file] get a file from the disk image. put [file] put a file in the disk image. del [file] delete a file from the disk image. cd [dir] change the current disk image directory. text set text mode. binary set binary mode. help display help. dump display a hex dump of the disk image. !command shell escape. quit exit the program.
DOS, Text File type: T DOS, Binary File type: B ProDOS, Text File type: TXT, SubType: R=0 ProDOS, Binary File type: BIN, SubType: A$=2000
File extentions are not properly recognised. To correct this problem use a command line option to specify the type of disk image you are accessing.
There is bound to be other bugs so be sure to backup your disk images just in case.
