Here is yet another DISC COVER but, judge for yourself, I think it is the most useful yet.

How often have you been sitting there with a handful of discs and needing to know what side of which disc is the program you think you called COPYCAT, or was it COPICAT, or KOPICAT? Also, is your original version of the program still on disc.... you think you called it DISCOVER? Which disc, which title, how much space is left on the disc, how long is the file, do I have to do a CAT on each side of each disc 'til I find it?

Not being one to keep tidy records of my jaunts through my 664, and being frustrated trying to find different versions of similar programs, I decided this computer should help me straighten things out. 

COPYCAT is the result and it works well. COPYCAT enables you to create a disc cover which fits neatly into the clear plastic disc protection box.

You can then refer to following details without the need to remove the disc from the box:

  1. Your disc reference number (a three character string)
  2. Your disc title (up to 26 characters)
  3. All details as shown on the monitor when a CAT is performed for both sides of the disc , ie.
    a) program/file title
    b) kbytes of disc space used by each program/file
    c) kbytes free on each side of the disc The program was written on the 664 but uses a short madune code routine instead of COPYCHR$ so as to be suitable for use on the 464 with disc drive and the 6128. The printer 1 use has a 17cpi (compressed printing) double width priming and line feed can be ajusted in 1/144" increments. The program uses LI of 9/72" and 1/6". With minimal adjustments to the program it should be able to run with any dot matrix printer.

Shown below is an example of the output from COPYCAT. Don t worry if you have a mass of short files, as the program will extend the length of the cover to fit all the files; when it does this it lets you know with a "CONTINUED OVERLEAF" note at the bottom of the front cover.

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.
