A2DiskDump is a utility which takes an Apple II DOS 3.3 disk image (in
"DOS" order) and extracts all the files from it in one batch,
optionally converting text files to AmigaDOS format.

With no special arguments, it just gives you a catalog listing of the
disk image.  You can optionally save the files, convert text to Amiga
format, only do text files, leave on or remove headers from binary
file, etc.  See the online help for more details.

The disk image is made by dumping it from a real Apple 5.25 inch DOS
3.3 floppy disk using a utility like ADT (A2ADT4AM for the Amiga) and
an Apple with a serial card.  The disk images are also useable /
creatable with Apple emulators like Apple2000 for the Amiga.

A2DiskDump is a utility for extracting all files from an Apple II
DOS 3.3 disk image file (like the kinds made from ADT the Apple Disk
Transfer utility).  The files are written to the current directory,
using the name from the disk's catalog, with illegal characters
replaced.  By default, a comment is attached to each file with its
catalog listing plus secret info (file length, start address).

DISKIMAGE/A is the required path name to the disk image file, which
is from an Apple II DOS 3.3 disk (256 bytes per sector, 16 sectors per
track, 35 tracks) and is 143360 bytes long.

DROPHEADER/S is a switch which if present, leaves out the header info
in binary files.  Otherwise, binary files will have a 4 byte header
containing address low/high bytes followed by length low/high.  Text
and other file types aren't affected by this switch.

KEEPTAIL/S is a switch which when present, includes the garbage past
the end of the file (end of file determined by the header for binary
files and BASIC files, or first NUL in text files).  This is useful
for random access text files used in databases, where the file contains
NUL characters for fixed length record padding.  Yes, the code does
handle sparse files, filling in the non-existent sectors with zeroes.

CONVERTTEXT/S when present switches on conversion of text files from
Apple II format into text file format (high bit set to zero and
carriage return characters turned into line feeds).

TEXTFILESONLY/S makes the dumpfile feature only dump text files,
skipping over all other file types.

NOCOMMENT/S specify this switch if you don't want to have comments
attached to the files.  The default is to have comments, with the
comment text being much like an Apple II catalog listing.

VERBOSE/S switches on debug messages and extra status info etc.
