Technology DSKExtract CoCo utility

(To regular readers, please excuse this one, it probably won't be useful to many of you!)

I made this command line utility that extracts files from a Color Computer .DSK virtual disk (as used in emulators such as M.E.S.S.). A new folder is created on the PC's drive and files found in the .DSK file are copied to it.

Current version

DSKExtract - Command line CoCo DSK extraction utility
Version 1.0.1 (May 22, 2006)

Freeware, copyright © 2006 by Patrick Benny (44K, includes Windows C source code)


Windows 9x+ (Tested on Windows 2000/Me/9x)


DSKExtract [dsk_file1.DSK .. [dsk_fileN.DSK]]
e.g. DSKExtract mydisk.dsk

In Windows, one or more DSK file(s) can also be simply drag-and-dropped onto this program.

Running the program without any arguments will allow extracting the contents of a DSK by inputing its filename.

Been looking for this util for years! Now I can get my OLD CoCo files off of these DSK files I converted years ago!
