       c1541 - a stand alone disk image maintenance program


       c1541 [options] [image]


       c1541  is a stand alone program that can be used for D64, D71, D81, X64
       and G64 disk image file maintenance.  It is part of the VICE  emulator.

       c1541 can be used both in interactive and batch mode.  It will start in
       interactive mode if no images and no options are specified  or  if  one
       image  is  specified;  when  started  in interactive mode, command line
       editing and command history are available.

       Each command line option for use in batch mode has an interactive  mode
       counterpart, that is shown in parenthesis.

       -attach image (attach image)
               attach  image  for use.  All consequent commands in interactive
               mode will refer to this image.

       -detach image (detach image)
               detach image from c1541.

       -format image (format imagename,id’)
              format the disk image image with the specified label.  image  is
              created if it does not exist.

       -delete image files... (delete files...)
              delete files from image

       -list image (list)
              list directory of image.

       -validate image (validate)
              validate mage.

       -copy image oldname1 [oldname2...] newname (copy oldname1 [oldname2...]
              concatenate  oldname1, oldname2... into newname on image (can be
              used to copy files).

       -create image dump [descr] (create image dump [descr]
              build image from raw dump file dump (i.e. convert  from  D64  to
              X64 file).

       -tape image tapeimage [files...] (tape image tapeimage [files...])
              transfer files from tapeimage to image (default is all files).

       -read image 1541name [fsname] (read 1541name [fsname])
              extract  1541name  from  the disk image into fsname (1541name by
              default) from image.

       -extract image (extract).
              extract all files from image.

       -write image fsname [1541name] (write fsname [1541name])
              write fsname to image as 1541name (fsname by  default).   (works
              with P00 files as well).

       -block   [drive:]  [track]  [sector]  [disp]  (block  [drive:]  [track]
       [sector] [disp])
              show disk blocks in hex format.

       -info image [descr] (info [descr])
              show version information about image.

       When  more than one command is specified in batch mode, all of them are
       executed in the same order they have on the command line.

       If you use - as a file name, it stands for stdin or stdout.
