Atari ST/Falcon Shareware CDs

Postby snoopy » Fri Jul 05, 2013 12:14 am

I just watched a talk of Jason Scott of Textfiles.com (BBS The Documentary, Get Lamp, Archive.org etc.) where he said he had a lot of browsable Shareware CDs on Textfiles.com.

They have Atari Shareware CDs (as well as DOS/Windows and Amiga http://cd.textfiles.com/directory.html). They contain lots of programs, games, graphics, music files, demos, disk based magazines etc. for St/e and/or Falcon - All of it shareware/freeware/PD. (To mods: If this will fit better into another category, feel free to move it). Enjoy.

Here's their Atari related stuff:

Will WGET command on Linux or Windows/Cygwin work for specific folders and its downloadable files?

So I tried an example to see where it fails from this URL: http://cd.textfiles.com/atarilibrary/atari_cd01/APPS/

My copy is here: http://www.yardley.cc/atari/marcer/cd.t ... cd01/APPS/

So these files are all on my local disk, and I can navigate between them...is this not what you wanted?

The command I used was: wget -m -r -k -np http://cd.textfiles.com/atarilibrary/atari_cd01/APPS/

Under Windows you can install Cygwin32 or Cygwin64.
https://www.cygwin.com/
The command is built in. When you install it and run the software it opens a terminal window and the WGET command is availables.

I yesterday download complete directories from cd.textfiles.com with WGET on Mac OS X.

I use:

Code: Select all

wget --mirror --convert-links --adjust-extension --page-requisites --no-parent -e robots=off -U 'Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8.1.6) Gecko/20070802 SeaMonkey/1.1.4' -P /Users/milan/_wget_dl --span-hosts http://cd.textfiles.com/806atari/


btw
I am still puzzled how people can still use Windows... it is useless pile of crap.
Great video that show essence of what is wrong with Windows: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vdCvVVFJdns
I have folder with dozen of idiotic solutions in Windows... ...Microsoft should hire me at position: "Quality control" :D
