I don't know of a utility offhand... but this shouldn't be too hard to
INPUT "emulator file:",vfile
INPUT "disk to write to (os-9 format ss 35 track):",drive
FOR count=1 TO 630
Note that this is set up for a single-sided 35 track disk image. JV
DSK files are raw sector dumps. DMK images have more data, but the
CoCo only needs those for a handful of games with really nasty copy
Also note I didn't write this, it was posted on the list at some
point. I have hacked on it some, but my versions are on a crashed
hard drive. :-(
The trick is to open the disk as /dX@ -- which signifies you want
absolute addressing on the disk. You have to be (supposedly anyway)
user 0 for that to work, but who actually uses OS-9LII multiuser?
Maybe we could convince the author of os9dsk (sorry I forgot your name
again) to add a -put option?
