SYNOPSIS

apriboot [-format FORMAT] [-type TYPE] [-side SIDE] [-comp COMP] [-retry COUNT] [-pcdos] [-apricot] DISKIMAGE [DSKIMAGE...]

DESCRIPTION

Apriboot rewrites the boot sector of the selected disc (or image), converting it between standard PCDOS format and the format used by the Apricot PC / Xi / F-series computers.

OPTIONS

-type TYPE
  Determines which driver is to be used.
-retry COUNT
  Set the number of times to attempt to read the disc in case of error.

-comp COMP
  Select the compression method used on the source disc image file (has no effect when reading a floppy disc).
-side SIDE
  Determines which side (0 or 1) of the disc (image) is to be identified.

-format FORMAT
  Selects a fixed format. Should not be necessary.

-apricot
  Forces the program to convert to Apricot format; if the boot sector is already in Apricot format, does nothing.

-pcdos Forces the program to convert to PCDOS format; if the boot sector is already in PCDOS format, does nothing. If neither -pcdos nor -apricot is supplied, the boot sector will be set to the opposite of whatever is currently in use.
