NAME

       snapconv — Sinclair ZX Spectrum snapshot converter

SYNOPSIS

       snapconv [ -c ] [ -n ] [ -f ] infile outfile

DESCRIPTION

       snapconv converts between ZX Spectrum snapshot files.

OPTIONS

       -c     specifies  that  all data in the output snapshot should be compressed, even if that
              compression will result in a bigger file than if some data  is  left  uncompressed.
              This  helps  compatibility  with  some  buggy  programs that can only read entirely
              compressed .z80 files.

       -n     specifies that the output snapshot should be uncompressed.

       -f     specifies that the A and F and A' and F'  registers  should  be  swapped.   Version
              0.5.0  and older of libspectrum(3) had a bug that resulted in these registers being
              swapped  in  SZX  snapshots  only.  Version  0.5.1  and  newer  of   libspectrum(3)
              automatically  recognise  these snapshots and correct the problem, but this flag is
              necessary  to  fix  some  snapshots  created  by  development  versions   only   of
              libspectrum(3)  which had the bug fixed, but cannot be distinguished from snapshots
              containing the bug.

       -h, --help
              give brief usage help, listing available options.

       -V, --version
              output version information.

       infile specifies the snapshot to be converted. This file can be in  any  of  the  snapshot
              formats supported by libspectrum(3).

       outfile
              specifies  the output snapshot. The format will be determined by the file extension
              and can be in any of the formats libspectrum(3) supports for output.

BUGS

       None known.
