Double-click a disk from the Disk Tree tab and a new tab appears. This tab contains a list of all the files on the disk. Click on a file and the Output panel will display the contents of that file. The disk sectors containing the file will also be highlighted in the Disk Layout panel.
Detailed sector display
Click on any sector in the Disk Layout panel and the Output panel will display the contents of that sector. If it is a recognised sector type, it will be formatted for easier reading.
Java runs on Windows, MacOS and Linux.
Applesoft Formatting and Analysis
Applesoft programs are displayed in a modern, easily-readable format. A comprehensive cross-listing of variables, strings, calls and jumps is available. Easily find duplicate variable names. For the truly retro look, programs can be displayed in the original 40-column line wrap mode.
Wizardry scenarios 1 to 3 are reasonably complete, Wizardry IV and V are partially done. For a dedicated Wizardry application see WizardryApp. Scenarios 4 and 5 come on multiple disks, and they need to be named so that the only difference between disk names is the identifier before the '.dsk' suffix.
DiskBrowser has an inbuilt Visicalc processor which will evaluate the sheet and display the results.
Complete Disk List
Generates a list of all the disks in your collection. The list can be sorted by any of the table headings. Checksums can be generated as needed, or for the whole collection. Select a disk and click the duplicates button to see all of the disks that share the same checksum.
