  YADI  ia  a  small  cli-only  program to transfer disk images to and from
Amiga devices.  A disk image is a file that contains the raw data as stored
in  an  AmigaDOS device.  YADI is useful to store NDOS disks as files, make
backups of devices, transfer Amiga disks to Amiga emulators, transfer Amiga
disk images used in the emulators (ADF/ADZ files) back to Amiga disks, etc.
Why another disk imager ?  Because the others suck.



YADI features:
--------------

  A  single program handles creation of disk images and also writes them to
devices.
  Supports  any  AmigaDOS  device,  of  any  size,  that supports trackdisk
compatible commands, using any filesystem.  This includes standard DF0:  to
DF3:   (low  or  high  density),  Cross-DOS  devices  like  PC0:, Cross-Mac
devices, diskspare devices, RAD:  , hard disk partitions, ZIPs, etc.
  You  supply  the  AmigaDOS  device name, i.e., DF1:, not trackdisk.device
unit 1; RAD:, not ramdrive.device.
  It  is  safe.   It  won't  let  you write a disk image over a device of a
different  size.   So  you  can't write by accident a 880kb disk image over
your hard disk partition.
  Works in any Amiga with kickstart 1.3 (and maybe even 1.2) or newer.  But
uses 2.0+ functions if available.
  Is public domain.


New features in version 2.0:
----------------------------

  Supports internal compression and decompression of disk images using gzip
compatible  algorithm  (uses  zlib  by  Jean-loup  Gailly).   Now  you  can
decompress directly the so called ADZ files and also generate them.
  Supports  decompression  of  DMS  files,  calling  the xDMS utility (also
written by me).  xDMS is available in Aminet in the directory util/arc.
  Supports enhanced control in the case of read/write errors.
  Supports batch reading/writing of several disk images.
  Can  show  informations  about the device geometry, needed if you want to
mount the disk image as a hardfile.
