New Features in v4.0.46
  This is a major upgrade.  It now includes the ability to read and write
  non-trackdisk devices like RAD: and FMS:

What is TransADF?
  TransADF creates Amiga Disk Files (ADFs), a 880kb file copy of
  an Amiga floppy disk.  It can also be used to transfer ADFs back
  to a real disk.  
  
  TransADF offerers several modes of operation.  It can create both
  PKZip and GZip compression formats directly from the disk, with only
  a small portion in memory at one time.  It can also decompress both
  formats, again directly to disk with little memory use.  TransADF has
  sophisticated PKZip support, allowing operation on any file within
  the archive (not just the first item, like GUnZip), as well as adding
  an ADF to an already existing archive.
  
  TransADF uses the Z Library to perform the compression and decompression.
  For more info on ZLib, visit http://www.cdrom.com/pub/infozip/zlib/
  ZLib was written by the same people who brought us GZip and Info-Zip,
  they being Jean-loup Gailly and Mark Adler.
  
  TransADf comes in three 'flavours':
  
     TransADF (46k):       Fully featured, staticly linked with the ZLib.
     TransADF-RT (19k):    Also fully featured, but uses the runtime
                           "z.library", available on Aminet in 
                           util/libs/zlib.lha.  
     TransADF-Lite (8k):   This version offers no compression or
                           decompression, hence the smaller size.  Only
                           ADFs can be read or created with this version.

  All three versions are compiled from the same sources, which are 
  included.  TransADF was written with the aid of DICE 3.15.
  
  This is the second release of TransADF, and the usual applies so send
  bug or incompatibility reports to me at by e-mail address above.

  Oh, and by the way, TransADF is FreeWare as defined by the GNU General
  Public License.


A note about ADFs
  An ADF has a variety of uses.  It can be used with floppy disk
  emulators such as the FMS device, which enables a file to be
  mounted as a drive.  Also, ADFs are used by the Amiga emulators
  UAE and Fellow (Amiga disks can not be read by PC drives).  A 
  zipped ADF can offer better compression than a DMS archive, with
  the advantage that it can be unzipped by any computer with a copy
  of GZip, PKZip, or the portable Info-Zip (which is just about all of
  them, I think).
