Cadius

(C) 2011-2012 by Antoine VIGNAU and Olivier ZARDINI

> What is Cadius ?

Cadius is a command-line tool for Windows to manage Apple II image disk files (.2mg, .po, .hdv).

Cadius is part of the
Brutal Deluxe's Cross Developpement Tools Project, a full set of utilities available on Windows (and other) platforms to enable the creation of new Apple IIgs software : 65c816 Assembler, 65c816 Desassembler, 65c816 Simulator, Graphic File Converter, Resource Catcher...

The first purpose of Cadius is to write the output of the 65c816 Assembler directly into an Apple IIgs disk image (usually a .2mg) in order to quickly test the result, avoiding many keyboard & mouse manipulations.
Cadius may also manage Source Code files, by setting/cleaning the High Bit and formatting the Source Code to make it easy to read and edit in the Windows world.

Because Cadius may transfer files between Apple II Images disks and Windows hard drive, a new file format to preserve native Apple IIgs Resource Part and File Properties (including Macintosh Finder Info) has been developped. You can now transfer all your Apple II image disk content to your Windows PC hard drive and manage the files from there. As soon as you are ready, you can synchronized files in the other direction (PC to II disk image).

Disk Image files transfer

The files available in the Cogito image disk (Cogito.2mg) : Cogito files in the .2mg file
     
are transfered to the PC hard drive, in a Folder named Cogito :

For each file having a Resource Part, a dedicated file is created (ending with _ResourceFork.bin suffix).

The file properties (creation / modification dates, Invisible flag) are mapped into the Windows world.

The other flags are kept into the _FileInformation.txt file (one per folder).
Cogito files on the PC

Source Code files conversion

Transfering Apple II Assembly source code to the PC gives you a flat file, hard to read : After the Cadius indent command, you source file is ready to be used :

Few remarks about the Parameters required on the Command Line :
 
        - Some Commands accept an optional -V as last parameter.  This enable the VERBOSE mode for this command (more information are displayed on the screen during command execution).
        - If the Windows File or folder paths contains Space characters, quote the path to avoid conflicts (Cadius.exe CATALOG "c:\Users and Settings\AppleIIgs\Cogito.2mg").
 
       - The Prodos File or Folder paths use the Slash character (/) as separator.
 
       -  A valid Prodos File or Folder Name is 15 characters long (max), starts with a letter (A-Z or a-z), may contains Numerics (0-9) or a period (.).
        - A Prodos File Path (
/Cogito/COGITO.DATAS/Music) starts with the Volume Name (/Cogito/), may contains some Folder Names (/COGITO.DATAS/) and ends with the File Name (Music).
        - A Prodos File Size can't be larger than 16 MB.
        - A valid Prodos Image Size is between 143 KB and 32 MB. If you want to specify 1,6 MB, use the 1600KB syntax (integer numbers only).
       - The number of Prodos Files or Folders located at the Root of the Volume is limited to 51. If you need to store more files, create Folders !

Few remarks about the software behavior :
        - Any error occuring during the execution of a command is immediately displayed on the Screen. For multi-actions command (ADD FOLDER = Add all Files from a Folder, including Subfolders), a report provides errors count at the end of the process.
        - If any error occurs during the execution of a command, the Prodos Image file is NOT modified. You won't get a kind of half done job (Folder created into the Image disk but not the File...).
        - For Windows to Prodos Image files transfers, we DO NOT 
OVERWRITE Prodos File. Make sure there are no already existing files with the same name at the Prodos Target path. You can use RENAME or DELETE commands to perform the clean-up.
        - For Prodos Image to Windows files transfers, we DO OVERWRITE the existing Windows files.
        - You can chain several commands using a .bat file.
        - You can re-direct the standard output of a Command into a Text file using the > character (
Cadius.exe CATALOG c:\AppleIIgs\Cogito.2mg > c:\AppleIIgs\CogitoCatalog.txt).
        -  Most of the time, if you want to use on the PC a Merlin 16+ Source file stored in a Prodos Image disk, you have to chain 3 Commands : EXTRACTFILE, CLEARHIGHBIT and INDENTFILE.
      - The Transfer Commands (ADD / EXTRACT) use a dedicated Windows file (_FileInformation.txt) to Read / Store the Prodos File properties (access flags, Macintosh Finder Info). File content :
Cogito=Type(B3),AuxType(0000),VersionCreate(00),MinVersion(BE),Access(E3),FolderInfo1(000000000000000000000000000000000000),FolderInfo2(000000000000000000000000000000000000)

    Example

CHECK VOLUME

    Check the Prodos Image blocks to validate the File System. Common errors are :
        - Blocks declared FREE in the Bitmap, but used by a File.
        - Blocks declared IN USE in the Bitmap, but not referenced by any object (File, Folder, Bitmap, ...).
        - Blocks claimed by a File or a Folder but already used by another File or Folder.

    The Verbose mode (-V) of the Command delivers a Block Usage report :

/Cogito/) does not match with the one of the Prodos Image disk.

Folder Properties

We do NOT preserve the Folder properties during files exchange beween the Apple II disk image and the Windows environment.
So the Creation / Modification dates and the Access flags are lost.

> F.A.Q

Is the Source code available somewhere ?

The Source code is freely available in the Zip file (see download section).
It is currently pakaged as a Visual Studio 2010 Project set of files. The tool is only using C Language, so you can recompile it with any other C ANSI compiler (GCC...).

What about a Macintosh or Linux release ?

Everything has be done to be as independant as possible from the Operating System. The first release has been done using a Windows environment. The Macintosh and Linux ports should be done in the next weeks, as soon as someone is ready to handle it !
The source code is written in C Ansi and the only Operating Systems calls have been isolated in a specific file. So porting the project to Macintosh or Unix systems should take maximum 4 hours to any C programmers having the knowledge of the target platform.

How do you compete with CiderPress ?

We don't :-)
CiderPress is a fantastic piece of code to interract with Disk Images (creating images, transfering files, viewing files...). We use it all the time !
Cadius is a disk image command line utility, mostly targeted to be used in a chain of Cross Developement tools. You can easily create batchs to launch multiple commands to manage disk image contents.

Where Cadius name comes from ?

Cool Another Disk Image Utility Software !
