Amiga Bootblock Reader 3.00

I have found some free time and am now working on a new version of ABR:

*New*
- Almost completely redesigned interface

- Bootblock Library
Will collect and save known bootblocks

- Bootblock Compare
Will compare any disk / bootblock loaded to all in your bootblock collection

- Allows changing of CPU usage speed up scan operations for stability

- Implemented Windows-1251 encoding, which may be closer to the original
Amiga-1251 codepage

- Implemented string search and recognition for boot blocks with varying
bootblock data position (e.g. Bootloaders)

- Added an alternate colour theme

- Changed directory scanner to allow longer filenames and more stability

- More bootblocks added to brainfile

- Lots of bug fixes

Will alter this post when i'm ready to release it

Thank you jason, it's excellent, because your tool can allow someone with an original with a defective bootblock (virus, overwritten by previous user, etc) to write a fresh copy and then restore it
