 This program is FreeWare.
 You may spread it as you like, but leave my name noticed.


 With this program you can find out about partitions, filesystems,
 bad-blocks, drive init codes and other HD related data.

 Usage (CLI only) :
 > RDB-Informer [[DEVICE] <device>] [[UNIT] <unit-nr>]

 The default for DEVICE is 'scsi.device' and for UNIT '0'

 Examples :
 > RDB-Informer scsi.device unit 4
 > RDB-Informer gvpscsi.device unit 6
 > RDB-Informer unit 2                ; uses scsi.device unit 2
 > RDB-Informer evolution.device      ; uses evolution.device unit 0

How to find out the device name ?

If you have an A600,A1200,A3000 or A4000 then the name is 'scsi.device'.

Otherwise look at your controller's manuals :-(
or use ARTM|XOper|some-other-system-monitor to list system devices
and pick the right one.
Usually the HD driving device contains in his name strings like
'scsi','hd','disk','hdisk','harddisk' or
the name of manufacturer or controller like :

 'gvpscsi.device'
 'z3scsi.device'
 'nexus.device'
 'evolution.device'
 'hddisk.device'
 'alf.device'


The source is compiled with DICE using
the Commodore Includes and the Commodore amiga.lib
using the following script :

DCPP      RDB-Informer.c    -o T:RDB-Informer.i
DC1     T:RDB-Informer.i    -o T:RDB-Informer.asm   -R -proto
DAS     T:RDB-Informer.asm  -o   RDB-Informer.o
DELETE  T:RDB-Informer.asm   quiet
DLINK     RDB-Informer.o     LIB:amiga.lib          -o RDB-Informer

No c.lib and similar stuff is used !
