Extract files from Atom TAP files.

Hi all

Does any one know of a utility to extract individual files from an atom .TAP file as used by the Dos Atom emulator ?

Cheers.

Phill.

Phill,

if you use the Atom emulator from Wouter Ras, you can save files from a .TAP file to an .ATM file.

Just press F9 to select a .TAP file,
The press Right and select a file,
Press E to export the file to an .ATM file.

Greetings
Kees

Phill, I've got a little one I've written in java, attached...

java -jar tapsplit.jar filename.tap

It'll barf out all the atm files with 8 character names, spaces removed (not to say there won't be some dots here and there...).

OOPS

Didn't notice there where replies.....

Anyway thanks guys, much apreciated.

Having not noticed that people had actually replied to this, I went away and wrote some code to do it....

Attached is Tap2ATM, which will split out the individual files, and optionally truncate them to 8 characters, and optionally send them to a specified directory.

Included is the Lazarus (FreePascal) project and source, this should compile on anything that FreePascal supports.

Cheers.

Phill.
