From: ae633 Subject: (MORE) WRITE DIR TO DISK Date: Sun Jul 30 08:54:40 1989 I posted the question regarding writing the disk directory to a disk file, but neglected to mention the system involved. Computer is an Atari 130XE with 1050 drive. I would like to read the DIR from D1: and write it on D8:. I have a nice CP/M program to do this on another machine, but don't know how on the Atari. Any ideas? Thanks! ** Answered by JIM HAYNES (aa268) on Mon Jan 25 02:08:28 1988 ** To Write the DIR of one disk to a file on the other is realy a matter of what DOS you are using. Assuming you are using DOS 2.0s or 2.5, do the following. Go to DOS. Type <A> for a directory. When asked for the drive # and destina tion. Type: Dx:,Dx:filename.ext The Directory should now be on your disk as a text file under the name you gave it. If using Sparta-DOS type: PRINT at the D: prompt. OOoops! scratch that. Type: PRINT Dx:filename.ext Now everything that gos to your screen will be printed to the file as well. Next Do a DIR of what ever Drive you want the same as you always do. When you are done, Type PRINT to turn off this redirection. Jim Haynes AA268
