Adf2dms rexx

Hi there

Has anyone used the adf2dms rexx tool from aminet? I tried to use it, I have all necessary tools it needs in C, and lib and made HD0: assigns in a directory. I tried to run in through dopus under rexx command like “RX rexx path with command and nothing happens. Can anyone help?

Have you done/notice this:
Quote:
** Note: the default SD0: device uses the statram.device, check aminet!
**
** Usage:
**
** copy this script to your REXX: directory
** make sure you installed the required components:
** Unzip, XAD, DMS, SD0: disk, rexxdossupport.library
** edit the variables (directory names) below to suit your installation.
** type in a shell: rx ADF2DMS
** get a cup of coffee.
There should be error messages in the shell window if there are some.

Careful as DMS format is buggy. Personally you'd be better off gzipping your adf files (gzip exists on amiga too)

Thanks for the reply.

I have all wanted files in c: and libs: meaning unzip, xad, dms. I am not sure what the sd0: disk is. Also do I need to get the statram.device in devs?

Also I have an ARexx folder in S and rexmast is running from boot.
Also when I tried it through dopus it gave me a hd0 request for directory which I made an assign for it.

I know is buggy but I am just experimenting with dopus rexx commands etc.

I am not intending to use any dms files.

Thanks for the heads up anyway though

SD0: is the device (real or virtual) where ADFs are written to (script description says so). So you need SD0: or change the "SD0:" string the in script to the device you want to use. On my system SD0: and statram.device doesn't exists.

You don't necessary need an ARexx folder in S. You can start ARexx scripts from everywhere. About HD0:, you need to change the script. At least this variables that refer to HD0:. Then you don't need to set assings.
Code:
SourceDir="HD0:Temp/ADF/"
DestDir="HD0:DMS/"
ErrorDir="HD0:FaultyZips/"
LogFileName="HD0:Temp/ADFErrors.log"
As you can see there is an error log. You should read it. If that doesn't help I would use the ARexx TRACE instruction to see what the script does and where are errors. And read the script description again.
