NAME
       apriboot	- rewrite disc boot sector, converting between Apricot and PC-
       DOS

SYNOPSIS
       apriboot	[-format  FORMAT]  [-type  TYPE]  [-side  SIDE]	 [-comp	 COMP]
       [-retry COUNT] [-pcdos] [-apricot] DISKIMAGE [DSKIMAGE...]
DESCRIPTION
       Apriboot	rewrites the boot sector of the	selected disc (or image), con-
       verting it between standard PCDOS format	and the	 format	 used  by  the
       Apricot PC / Xi / F-series computers.

OPTIONS
       -type TYPE
	      Determines which driver is to be used.

       -retry COUNT
	      Set  the	number of times	to attempt to read the disc in case of
	      error.

       -comp COMP
	      Select the compression method used on the	source disc image file
	      (has no effect when reading a floppy disc).

       -side SIDE
	      Determines  which	 side  (0  or  1) of the disc (image) is to be
	      identified.

       -format FORMAT
	      Selects a	fixed format. Should not be necessary.

       -apricot
	      Forces the program to convert to Apricot	format;	 if  the  boot
	      sector is	already	in Apricot format, does	nothing.

       -pcdos Forces  the program to convert to	PCDOS format; if the boot sec-
	      tor is already in	PCDOS format, does nothing. If neither	-pcdos
	      nor -apricot is supplied,	the boot sector	will be	set to the op-
	      posite of	whatever is currently in use.
