1.0 Released on LoadStar Issue #130
The GEOS Disk Filer was my first attempt at GEOS programming. Armed only with a scant
knowledge of ML and the GEOS Technical Reference Manual, I dived into my favorite pass-time:
application writing. With this history in mind, I present you "geoDiskFiler"!
I was so pleased with the results when it was done that I decided
to send it off to LoadStar, thus beginning my relationship with those good folks. It
was published in LoadStar Issue #130, along with the complete documentation I had
GEOS Disk Filer is a program designed to help Commodore users who are still (for the
most part) floppy disk users keep track of all their programs in a database specialized
for this purpose.
Like other programs of its type, it includes the ability to read filenames off of a disk,
or enter filenames by hand. The advantage of using geoDiskFiler over other programs was
that my program can handle GEOS filenames as well as regular CBM filenames.
Users may also sort their filenames, edit the filenames entered, or remove filenames
from the list. An ID number identifies each file as belonging to a particular disk, or
whatever purpose one would want to use the ID for.
The latest version had some Wheels hooks poked in for native directories.
That's it! Be sure to visit the LOADSTAR if you would like
to order this program. Ask for issue #130!
