For those out there with a disc system, most of you, at one time or another, will have wanted to play around with your disc and modify them to suit yourself. To be able to do this with safety, you will need to be able to find your way around the disc and then modify it under CP/M. Now there is a way to be able to do all these things with a very useful utility called ODDJOB. Oddjob consists of eight parts on the one disc plus the necessary help files to let you know what the program will actually do. The eight parts arc listed below;

  1. DIREDIT
  2. FASTPORM
  3. DISCLONE
  4. SECTEDIT
  5. DISCMAP
  6. DISCTAPE
  7. SPEEDISC
  8. REMPRO

All of these options are available from the opening menu as well the help files which are accessed by pressing Option 9. After reading the help file on a part of ODDJOB, you arc then given the option of running that part. Most useful.

All of these parts serve a useful purpose although some of them I have yet to use. The easiest way to explain them is to go through each pait separately and give you a quick rundown.

DIREDIT

Allows for editing of the directory to suit yourself. Shows directory entries in two pages of 32 files and allows you to modify them in the following ways;

  1. Renaming of files.
  2. Erasing of files.
  3. Unerasing of files as long as nothing has been written to that file area.
  4. Set files to SYS, which stops files appearing in the directory.
  5. Set files to R/O, which cannot be erased except under ODDJOB or by resetting to R/W.
  6. Reset SYS files to DIR and R/O files to R/W.
  7. Change user number.

These changes to the disc will not affect the disc until such time as the < S > option is utilised and even then you are given another chance. A very useful part of ODDJOB and one part that I use quite often.

For those of you that use it often, to bypass the menu and save a bit of time, type RUN"DIREDIT.ODJ and this will get you straight in.

FASTFORM

This option will format a disc in super fast time. Works with all formats and also 5.25 inch drives. There is however a slightly increased chance of a READ ERROR. Just press < R > to retry.

DISCLONE

This is similar to the copy option under either of the Disc kit versions except that it will copy any type of disc. If there is a fault while using Disckit, it will tell you and a»k you what to do. With DISCLONE, it will copy any disc that I have so far come across including ones with funny loaders.

SECTEDIT

Allows you to examine and/or modify any formatted sector on a disc. Must be used with DISCMAP to identify the correct sector. Haven't found much use for cither of these two options.

DISCMAP

Lets you locate the necessary parts of a file on disc that you may wish to modify and then use SECTEDIT on them.

DISCTAPE

Very useful option to allow you to transfer some of those not often used programs to tape and reclaim some expensive disc space. Very large binary files (In excess of 43k) cannot be transferred with this. When saving to tape 7 speeds arc available from 1000 baud to 4000 baud.

SPEEDISC

Hypes up your disc drive unit to allow it to work anywhere up to 25% faster. The pamphlet only claims 20% but some timings indicate that it is even quicker. Doesn't use any of the computer's memory to achieve this feat. However the program is lost when the computer or the disc parameters arc reset. Is very useful when working with large files on programs like Tasword 6128.

REMPRO

Allows a protected basic program to be loaded and then listed to modify them to your own ends. Only works with basic programs that have been saved with the ,p command.

One of the rules that you must abide by when using any part of ODDJOB is that it must not be used to infringe copyright on a program unless you have bought that program yourself.

That is a very quick rundown on the options that arc available under ODDJOD. It is definitely one of the most useful pieces of utility software that I have in my collection and I would well recommend it to anyone.

L'alinéa 8 de l'article L122-5 du Code de la propriété intellectuelle explique que « Lorsque l'œuvre a été divulguée, l'auteur ne peut interdire la reproduction d'une œuvre et sa représentation effectuées à des fins de conservation ou destinées à préserver les conditions de sa consultation à des fins de recherche ou détudes privées par des particuliers, dans les locaux de l'établissement et sur des terminaux dédiés par des bibliothèques accessibles au public, par des musées ou par des services d'archives, sous réserve que ceux-ci ne recherchent aucun avantage économique ou commercial ». Pas de problème donc pour nous!

L'Amstrad CPC est une machine 8 bits à base d'un Z80 à 4MHz. Le premier de la gamme fut le CPC 464 en 1984, équipé d'un lecteur de cassettes intégré il se plaçait en concurrent  du Commodore C64 beaucoup plus compliqué à utiliser et plus cher. Ce fut un réel succès et sorti cette même années le CPC 664 équipé d'un lecteur de disquettes trois pouces intégré. Sa vie fut de courte durée puisqu'en 1985 il fut remplacé par le CPC 6128 qui était plus compact, plus soigné et surtout qui avait 128Ko de RAM au lieu de 64Ko.
