windows tool to convert ipf to wwp / normal adf file

Hi,

A lot of IPF releases are made of a .zip with several .IPF files. Those IPF files are mostly .ADF files (when not protected)

On the amiga side, I have a tool to convert IPF to WWP and then WWP to ADF.
Any way to do the same on windows size so I can script this directly on the windows side?

I don't know of any existing tool, but if those Amiga tools are well-behaved CLI tools, then you may be able to run them through Vamos, but as is usually the case with Windows, it may take some effort to set things up.

My uaeunp (from winuae.net) should be able to do it. I am not sure if it is easily scriptable but it can be improved easily.

uaeunp seems perfect. With a python script I can process all the files in a SPS .zip file, so that's great.

Edit: bad luck

I have an input file as .IPF. Cannot seem to convert it to adf simply

uaeunp foo.ipf foo.adf

=> 'foo.adf' not found

and don't I need the SPS DLL in my path?

Can you upload it to the Zone?
Thanks in advance.

@mr vince: uae & uaeunp seem to use your sources directly. It never asks for the DLL. Do you confirm?
@carlos: it is a lousy amiga script, I tried to attach the dependencies (wwarp,dirname,basename...), just to be complete. not sure that this is the latest wwarp, mfm2wwarp...

I upload it under ipf2adf.zip. There's a readme.

Worked for me when I tried randomly chosen RailroadTycoon_Disk1.ipf

Code:
uaeunp.exe RailroadTycoon_Disk1.ipf railroadtycoon_disk1.adf
RailroadTycoon_Disk1.adf extracted, 901120 bytes

DLL is required.

I understand: the name of the .adf file must match the name of the .ipf file.

I just tested and it works. Thanks.

Bert just tells me that there is tw2adf in http://whdload.de/whdload/TrackWarp17.lha which
does this too

If you're running WinUAE, consider uaeunp. Should me much faster and easier to script in python

regards

It is needed because it is not just ipf to adf converter.

It will also list directory of source image (if it has any supported filesystem), it can also extract PC format image (if source is PC formatted or is dual formatted), it can extract it as an extended adf and so on.

ok, I understand the needs of a generic command line structure. No big deal, can be pythonized in a second
(does anybody needs something like that?: ipf2adf.py *.ipf => all adf extracted)

thanks.
