A Utility Request!

Postby Heavy Stylus » Tue Nov 06, 2007 6:14 pm

Cheeky to ask, but I'd like to see a GUI-based file splitter/joiner for the atari. No compression, just an easy to use program to split large files to several of a specified size, and then join them again.

This would be really useful for transferring large files from an atari HD to PC via 720 disks.

Any chance of this?

Do you have a PC with a parallel port on it?

Case closed...

Yes Alison, but I just wanted a quick and easy fix... I've got it now thanks to a handy Atari tool called Splitter 2.

Cheers guys! You can ignore my request. :wink:
