Sam .dsk Image ManipulatorThis simple program allows you to transfer individual files between a .dsk image and your hard disk. Original C source code is availble (Mac version). The ANSI C version (altered by Thomas Harte) was used to compile the DOS version and should also work on Unix-like operating systems.
Paulo Silva's Utilities
Paulo Silva writes:Around 8 years ago I coded these picture converters for the display modes 1 and 2 of Sam Coupé - I think I coded them on QBasic, and I'm about recoding them on Python (maybe using Pygame, due on the picture loading and saving better support) - anyway, the code is GPL and all there.
For these codes, the pictures must be uncompressed bmp files with 16 colours, since it loads the .bmp file byte by byte. The results works fine on Edwin Blinky's Screen Viewer.
A very silly converter, but i think it can make the difference for newbies - it helps people converting txt files into sam coupe files into Sam Coupé disks (or imagedisks) - the code is very simple (and with lots of naive mistakes) but can be hugelly useful, like it were for me, when still lacks something similar to 'bas2tap' (from ZX-Spectrum) for Sam Coupé.
If you want your Sam-related programs to be hosted here please email them to me together with a brief description.
