WAP /// SIG PD LIBRARY Disk: 3DAD-01 DA Datasystems Catalog Disk This disk contains the catalog of a former Apple /// vendor - D.A. Datasystems We've done this for a couple of reasons. One is historical. It's important to preserve the information about the products listed here. Secondly, this company made an important and lasting contribution to the /// community and deserves that recognition. We also think it's interesting to read the descriptions... and see what the going prices were just a few years ago. Please note that we have almost every D.A. Datasystem program in our library.

WAP /// SIG PUBLIC DOMAIN LIBRARY PDS NAME: The Retriever DISK ID#: 3DAD-03 BOOTABLE?: Bootable THE RETRIEVER will recover inadvertently deleted files on your Apple /// floppy diskettes or hard drives. In most cases the lost data is fully and reliably restored. If you delete a file and then alter or save other files on that disk, it is possible that parts of the disk which previously contained data from your deleted file will be over-written by the new data, and thus permanently lost. THE RETRIEVER may not be able to recover all or part of a file if it is not used immediately after the file is deleted. Since this cannot always be the case, THE RETRIEVER has facilities to assist you in recovering partial files under many circumstances. Side One RUN.RETRIEVER :(From Menu.Maker) runs the Retriever program. Side Two USER.MANUAL :Complete documentation about The Retriever.

WAP /// SIG PUBLIC DOMAIN LIBRARY PDS NAME: Power Print /// DISK ID#: 3DAD-04 BOOTABLE?: Nonbootable Power Print /// is a Ram Spooler which will allocate a large section of your system's memory as a SERIAL or PARALLEL PRINTER BUFFER. The Power Print Buffer is configured as an installable Device Driver which may replace your existing .PRINTER driver. This facilitates printing of longer documents or printouts because the printer output is very quickly 'dumped' into the buffer by your application then printed over a much longer period of time, by the .PPRINT driver software. Your application will resume after the dump stage instead of awaiting completion of printing.

WAP /// SIG PUBLIC DOMAIN LIBRARY PDS NAME: Disk Window /// DISK ID#: 3DAD-05 BOOTABLE?: Bootable DISK SIZE: DS 5.25 OS: SOS Disk Window /// is a collection of Basic and Assembler language programs which function together to allow you to directly access and alter any location on any Apple /// disk storage device. Using Disk Window /// you can access those parts of the disk which are normally reserved solely for Operating System access. These include the 'bitmap' mapping available sectors on the disk, the file-type byte in a file directory entry, and the boot code in block 0, for instance. Although its power lies in its granting you the ability to access and change disk data outside of the normal file-based structures, Disk Window /// can be quite useful in allowing simple debugging and patching of file data which is ultimately, itself, stored as disk-block data.

WAP /// SIG PUBLIC DOMAIN LIBRARY PDS NAME: Data Window and Source Window DISK ID#: 3DAD-06 BOOTABLE?: Bootable DISK SIZE: DS 5.25 OS: SOS On Side One: Data Window is a collection of utility programs which will produce for you a standard formatted "dump" of Apple /// system RAM or of any FILE stored on any Apple /// device. It features a FileDump mode which can be extremely useful in debugging stray data errors or damaged file structures which standard applications cannot access. Any file can be dumped to the screen for viewing or saved for later examination with your word processor. All the little extra pieces of information that are imbedded in the file, but transparent to your application program can be examined. See USER.MANUAL for complete instructions. On Side Two: Source Window is a powerful implemented Reverse Assembler or DisAssembler which will convert existing "machine language" programs such as Device Drivers or even SOS itself into readable symbolic listings. Output is formatted in a manner which can be easily altered and reassembled if desired. By Daryl Anderson. USER.MANUAL : A complete tutorial on how to use Source Window.

WAP /// SIG PUBLIC DOMAIN LIBRARY PDS NAME: Power Cat and Basic XRF DISK ID#: 3DAD-07 BOOTABLE?: Bootable On Side One: Power Cat is a disk librarian which will sort and catalog over 5000 individual files and programs scattered over up to 500 floppy diskettes or on Profile or other hard disk. The Power Cat report can be used to quickly locate current or correct versions of files scattered around your not always perfectly organized filing system. The programs will produce a table of contents of all directories and sub-directories which have been scanned followed by a listing, sorted by file name, of all files selected. Each file will carry a reference number indicating the specific directory in the table of contents which it is associated with. This format allows more concise and readable reporting. Sorting is accomplished with a high-speed assembler language quiksort routine which effectively eliminates sort time as a performance factor. USER.MANUAL: Complete instructions. On Side Two: Basic XRF is a utility program that will produce a Sorted Cross-Reference of all Variables in any Business Basic program - showing all variables used in the program followed by a list of every program line that variable is used in. It is written in a combination of Basic and Assembler and uses sophisticated hashing and linked-list algorithms for speed and compactness. Compiled under Basic GTO to increase speed up to 62%. BASIC XRF runs automatically at the prompt, or may be run using the Menu.Maker program by highlighting "RUN.XRF" and pressing return. The program will prompt you for the full pathname of the program to be cross-referenced, e.g. .PROFILE/BASIC/TEST/MYPGM (This file should not be "Locked"). XREF will then proceed to process through your program displaying the current line number being processed and a clock-line display to verify that something is happening. The program will finally prompt you for an output destination for the cross-reference listing. This may be a file or listing device such as .PRINTER. USER.MANUAL: Complete documentation.
DISK ID#: 3DAD-08
WAP /// SIG PUBLIC DOMAIN LIBRARY PDS NAME: Basic Extension DISK ID#: 3DAD-08 BOOTABLE?: Bootable Basic Extension is a series of Basic Invokables placed into the Public Domain by Foxware, Inc. of Salt Lake City, UT. Basic Extension can: speed up programs; save disk space; add new functions; decrease development time. Routines include Matrix R/W, Block and Ftype; Move and Searrarray; Con, Reboot, Reset, Bit and Upshift. Side One: Boot disk and Basic Extension Invokables. Invokables on Side One : BIT.INV : Bit.inv consists of two routines: 'Band' and 'Bor'. Band performs a Binary AND of two integer numbers. Bor provides a Binary OR. BLOCK.INV: Block.inv consists of two routines: Wblock (write block) and Rblock (read block). Their purpose is to allow reading and writing of 'blocks' of information from disk drives. CON.INV : One of the two routines included in Con is 'Buff'. It provides the ability to: 1. Clear the type ahead buffer of all characters that have not yet been processed. 2. Set the size of the type ahead buffer to any length between 0 & 127 characters. FYTPE.INV: Ftype consists of two routines: Gftype (get file type) and Cftype (change file type). They allow your program to inspect the type of a file and/or change it. MATRW.INV : Matrw.inv is a group of procedures which provide high speed disk access, and can reduce disk storage usage by more than 30%. The name 'Matrw.inv' stands for 'Matrix Read Write Invokable'. MOVE.INV : Move contains two routines: Movenum (Move numeric) and Movestr (Move string). They both perform similar functions. Move works on numeric arrays while Movestr works on string arrays. Their purpose is to move strings of arrays. REBOOT.INV : Reboot zeros all memory, clears the screen, displays "INSERT SYSTEM DISKETTE & REBOOT"in 40 column black and white, and hangs. Hold down the CONTROL key and press reset to reboot. RESET.INV : Reset.inv is an invokable modual that provides the ability to enable and disable the RESET and CONTROL-RESET functions. If the resets are disabled, pressing RESET or CONTROL and RESET together will have no effect. SEARARRAY.INV :Seararray searches a string array for a specified group of characters. It is similar in function to INSTR, but acts on a entire array instead of only one string. Also it can ignore differences between upper and lower case letters during the search. UPSHIFT.INV :Upshift is a routine that changes all of the lower letters in a string to upper case. Only letters are affected. Numbers and symbols are not changed.

Some folks regularly use the Public Domain "Directory Sorter" program on their entire (hard) disk. Doing this might, for instance, sort Asci.Tbl first and cause Power Keys to hang when entered. You may, if you wish, rename PWR.KEYS to AA.PWRKY or somesuch which will sort first. The renaming will not affect program function. (2) Some folks appear to be running into problems with QuikScrn in particular when used in conjunction with the Titan "3+2e" system and its .RAM driver. This appears to be caused by the large size of the .RAM driver. (3) The QuikScreen "At-Curs" function is no longer supported.

WAP /// SIG PUBLIC DOMAIN LIBRARY PDS NAME : PowerScreen by Tim Harrington DISK ID # 3DAD-11 BOOTABLE ? Yes - Side One Only (to read manual) Module Name Code : PSCREEN Memory Usage : 3.5K REQUIRES POWERKEYS DM+ (3SIG PD DISK 3DAD-09) Brief description : PowerScreen is a screen dump utility for use with Darryl Anderson's Powerkeys utility for the Apple ///. It allows you to dump either the current Power Keys screen (e.g. Keymap, Notepad, Ascii Table) or the user program screen (e.g. Help screens in Apple Writer, Driver setup in SCP, menu in /// EZ Pieces). Functions: (1) You can print the entire screen or any rectangle that you define with the arrow keys. (2) You can abort the dump in case you specified the wrong file name or device name. (3) You can suppress carriage returns and/or linefeeds. If you suppress carriage returns, PowerScreen will add a space where the carriage return would have been. This is so you can dump a paragraph from one program and have your favorite word processor (re)define the margins. ** NOTE - This was originally a Royaltyware offering by Tim Harrington through TAU - the Third Apple Users Group. ALSO ON THIS DISK: Another Powerkeys module called "QSCR.235" - undocumented.
