       hmsa - Atari MSA / ST disk image creator and converter


       hmsa diskimage [disksize]


       Hmsa  is  little  program  to  create  compressed  Atari  MSA  (Magic Shadow Archiver) and
       uncompressed ST disk images and to convert disk images between these two formats.

       MSA and ST image format saving code is same as in Hatari itself.


       If you give only one parameter, the file name of an existing MSA or ST  disk  image,  this
       image will be converted to the other disk image format under a suitable new file name.

       If the file does not exist and you give also a disk size:

       SS     Single Sided (360KB)

       DS     Double Sided (720KB)

       HD     High Density (1.44MB)

       ED     Extended Density (2.88MB)

       An empty disk of the given size will be created.

       Disk image format is recognized based on the file name extension (either .msa or .st).


       Create a normal double sided empty ST disk image:
            hmsa DS

       Convert an MSA format disk image to an ST format one:
            hmsa disk.msa
