ADFBLITZER v1.2  By Magnus Lundin!   13-Feb-1998
ADFBlitzer V2.0+ By Andreas Etzrodt! since 25-Sep-2000

How to install ADFBLITZER

        Just put the icon where you want on the hd and 
        double-click on the icon.

How to use it!

        When you start it you have three buttons to choose from:

        Write:  Lets you write an adf-file from your harddisk to your 
                diskdrive (DF0: to DF3:!)       

        Read:   Lets you create an adf-file from dfx: (DF0: to DF3:) 
                to your Harddisk!

        Quit:   HMMM!??!??!? Wonder what that could be?

Have a look at the menu! You can see there the same "buttons".
You can also use your keyboard to control the program. Just press
Right-Amiga-W to write an ADF, Right-Amiga-R to read an ADF,
Right-Amiga-? to show the About-Requester and Richt-Amiga-Q
to quit the program.

If you want to change the diskdrive which ADFBlitzer writes
to and reads from you just have to select the proper Menu-Item
in the "Drive"-Menu.

ADFBlitzer has been coded by Magnus Lundin (elp at algonet.se) up
to V1.2. As he didn't do a new version I asked him to give the
source away. He sent it (based on V1.1) to me and gave me the
permission to publish the new version.

ADFBlitzer V2.0 and up are coded by Andreas Etzrodt, based on
the code by Magnus Lundin.

 ADFBLITZER is provided "AS IS" without warranty
 of any kind, and the authoris not responsible for
 any damage this software may do.

ADFBlitzer is Cardware. If you like it I request a picture
postcard from your hometown! I really love getting postcards.
So please be honest.

The source code is released as Cardware, too! If you use parts
of it you have to send a postcard to my address. Please don't
spread altered versions of ADF-Blitzer without my permission.


History
-------

changes by Andreas Etzrodt:

V2.20 (28-May-2001):

- Now it's possible to select the drive via keyboard

- slightly changed an error message

- added a new error message (if disk is write protected)

- inhibit the drive to prevent other tasks accessing it

- changed "by Lundin/Etzrodt" to "Etzrodt/Lundin" :-)


V2.10 (08-Dec-2000):

- now you can also use DF1-DF3!

- removed a little bug (CPU-consumption)


V2.00 (25-Sep-2000):

- some code-optimizations (removed "Gotos",
  changed the code for the button-check,
  removed some unnecessary variables)

- removed the background-pic (caused some
  trouble with palette)

- improved (?) the GUI a little bit

- added a menu

- added an About-Requester (Menu)

- added a close-gadget at the window-border

- added keyboard-support



Future
------

Any suggestions?

What I can't do at the moment: add support for non-disk-drives
(RAD:, other "Harddrive-Floppy-Emulators"). And: add a progress
indicator. 

At least the progress indicator is very important for me. So
I will do my best to find a way to support it.

If you know how to code in Blitz Basic: please help me!
Look at the Source-code and tell me if it's possible to
implement a progress indicator.
