Utility to manage file systems on retro computer disk images
Python library for hierarchical filesystem parsing on Atari 8-bit and Apple ][ disk images. The successor to atrcopy, this is under heavy development and is still in a beta state. It is the basis for disk image support in Omnivore 2.
Pronounced “uh-trip”, the name is a happy coincidence that a dictionary word exists that is the quasi-portmanteau of “ATR” (the Atari 8 bit disk image container) & “rip” (extracting stuff from images). The actual word is a nautical term: “atrip” as in “the anchor is atrip”, meaning the ship’s anchor is off the bottom. I have no particular affinity for ships, but that I had some justification in the portmanteau is enough for me.
- Supported Formats
- Segment Structure
Supported Python versions:
- Python 3.6 (and later)
It will be automatically installed when installing with pip as described below.
- pytest-cov (optional)
The test suite uses pytest and pytest-cov, but these are not required for normal installation.
ATRip is available in the PyPI and installable using pip:
pip install atrip
Linux and macOS note: if numpy needs to be installed on your system, it may be compiled from source which can take several minutes.
- list contents of disk images
- copy files to and from disk images
- delete files from disk images
- create new disk images
- concatenate binary data together into a file on the disk image
- compile assembly source into binary files if pyatasm is installed
- XFD: XFormer images, basically raw disk dumps
- ATR: Nick Kennedy’s disk image format; includes 16 byte header
- DCM: Disk Communicator images, Bob Puff’s compression format for Atari disk images
- CAS: Atari cassette images
- DSK: Apple ][ DOS 3.3 disk image; raw sector dump
|DOS 2 (90K)||Atari 8-bit||Yes||Yes||Fully supported|
|DOS 2 (180K)||Atari 8-bit||Yes||Yes||Fully supported|
|DOS 2.5 (130K)||Atari 8-bit||Yes||Yes||Fully supported|
|DOS 3 (130K)||Atari 8-bit||No||No||Unimplemented|
|SpartaDOS||Atari 8-bit||No||No||Under development|
|MyDOS||Atari 8-bit||Partial||No||Under development|
|DOS 3.3||Apple ][||Yes||Yes||Fully supported|
|ProDOS 8||Apple ][||No||No||Unimplemented|
|.xex||Atari 8-bit executable files||Yes||Yes||Fully supported|
|KBoot||Atari 8-bit xex in boot disk||Yes||Yes||Fully supported|
|.car||Atari 8-bit cartridge images||Yes||No||Read only|
|BSAVE||Apple ][ BSAVE data||Yes||Yes||Fully supported|
Note: Atari ROM cartridges are supported in both both plain binary and atari800 .car format
Archives containing multiple disk images are supported, where each disk image within the archive will be given a disk number and is addressable using that prefix.
|Zip File||.zip||Yes||Yes||Fully supported|
|Tar File||.tar||Yes||Yes||Fully supported|
Archives may also be compressed with any of the general purpose compression formats listed below.
Compression is supported transparently, so any type of disk image compressed with any of the following formats can be used directly, without first decompressing it before running ATRip.
Chaining is supported to an arbitrary depth, meaning that one compression algorithm can be applied to the output of another. This is not practical except in limited cases, as in a Disk Communicator image that is subsequently gzipped (image.dcm.gz). But cases that actually make compression worse will be handled as well, like image.gz.bz2.xz.bz2.gz.gz.gz.
|Compression Format||File Ext||Read||Write||Status|
|lzma||.xz, .lzma||Yes||Yes||Fully supported|
|lzw (Unix compress)||.Z||Yes||No||Read only |
|Disk Communicator||.dcm||Yes||Yes||Atari images only |
