Frank Wille's BPPCFix readme:

> BUGS
>    Unfortunately you can't reactive the original ppc.library from LIBS:,
>    like on the CSPPC, when the bppcfix kick tag is active. I guess the

BPPCFixFix fixes this. :-)

BPPCFixFix is a file patcher program that make the 68040, 68060 and
ppc libraries disk loadable on Blizzard PPC cards.

This is handy if you've disabled FlashROM libraries with BPPCFix.

BPPCFix program itself is not included. Use Frank Wille's BPPCFix program
or BlizKick's BPPCFix & BPPCFix040 modules to disable the FlashROM
libraries.


Features:

  - patched libraries will load at any time.
  - loading the patched library is a lot faster than reinitializing with
    InitPPCLib. InitPPCLib takes 3.3 seconds on my 68060  at  50MHz while
    loading the patched library is almost instant.
  - BPPCFixFix is easy to use shell command.
  - full source code (in AmigaE) is included.


  BPPCFIXFIX USAGE
  ----------------

Format:        BPPCFIXFIX [FROM] <name> [TO] <name>

Template:      FROM/A,TO/A

Purpose:       Patch library to be loadable with Blizzard PPC

Specification:

BPPCFIXFIX load the given library file (FROM) and patch it to be
loadable from disk with Blizzard PPC turbo cards.

The patched file is written to file specified by TO argument.

Example:

1> lha x 68060-191099.lha #?/680?0#?.library t:
1> lha x ppc-user-09042000.lha #?/ppc.library t:
1> BPPCFIXFIX t:libs/68040.library to libs:68040new.library
1> BPPCFIXFIX t:libs/68060.library to libs:68060.library
1> BPPCFIXFIX t:PPCRelease/libs/ppc.library libs:ppc.library

This example will generate Blizzard PPC disk loadable versions of
the 68040, 68060 and ppc libraries.

NOTE: You also need to set up two other libraries like this (these
don't need patching):

  Workbench 3.x 68040.library   ->  libs:68040old.library
  t:libs/68040dummy.library     ->  libs:68040.library

And finally you need BPPCFix set up properly before these files are
really used.
