Short description

XDSKF builds self-extracting executables from diskette image files. A welcome text can be attached to a XDSKF executable to be displayed before diskette extraction. As Family API Application (FAPI) programs the created XDSKF executables can run under OS/2, eComStation and DOS.

Overview

The XDSKF package provides a self-extraction extension for DSK files (diskette image files created with SAVEDSKF or EMT4OS2). For the task of extracting the image to a diskette using this extension, the LOADDSKF program is being embedded in XDSKF self-extracting diskette image executables.

A text can be attached to a XDSKF executable file that is to be displayed before extraction of the diskette image. This text can be provided in several languages, in this case the language is selected accordingly to the language of the system where the self-extracting diskette image executable is being executed.

Both the program MKXDSKF used to create XDSKF files and the created programs can run under OS/2 or eComStation and DOS (so also under Windows), as they are so-called 16-bit Family API programs (FAPI). The drawback of that solution is that it can execute in character mode only, but this is mostly sufficient for this simple task anyway.
