       apriboot - rewrite disc boot sector, converting between Apricot and PCDOS


       apriboot  [-format  FORMAT] [-type TYPE] [-side SIDE] [-comp COMP] [-retry COUNT] [-pcdos]
       [-apricot] DISKIMAGE [DSKIMAGE...]


       Apriboot rewrites the boot sector of the selected disc (or image), converting  it  between
       standard PCDOS format and the format used by the Apricot PC / Xi / F-series computers.


       -type TYPE
              Determines which driver is to be used.

       -retry COUNT
              Set the number of times to attempt to read the disc in case of error.

       -comp COMP
              Select  the  compression  method  used on the source disc image file (has no effect
              when reading a floppy disc).

       -side SIDE
              Determines which side (0 or 1) of the disc (image) is to be identified.

       -format FORMAT
              Selects a fixed format. Should not be necessary.

              Forces the program to convert to Apricot format; if the boot sector is  already  in
              Apricot format, does nothing.

       -pcdos Forces  the  program  to  convert to PCDOS format; if the boot sector is already in
              PCDOS format, does nothing. If neither -pcdos nor -apricot is  supplied,  the  boot
              sector will be set to the opposite of whatever is currently in use.
