Disk Labeller Pro
|Disk Labeller Pro|
After writing and using Disk Labeller for a couple of years, ProDOS came on the scene and I rewrote Disk Labeller to work with ProDOS. Disk Labeller Pro had many improvements over the original DOS 3.3 Disk Labeller, including a nifty graphic startup screen, a cool menu system, support for more printers and interface cards, including the Apple Imagewriter, and some user preferences that could be set. In addition, custom printer and interface codes could be added from within the program, instead of having to edit the code.
Disk Labeller Pro is written in Applesoft Basic and runs on any Apple II capable of running ProDOS, with at least one disk drive, lowercase capability, and a dot matrix printer that will print Condensed Superscipt (17 CPI, 1/2 height) characters.
This program will read a ProDOS disk catalog, then print a label consisting of the Volume name, Number of Free Blocks, and the Name, Type, and Size of up to 42 files in the volume directory. You can let Disk Labeller Pro print all of the files on the disk, or you can choose to be shown the catalog entry for each file, and asked whether you wish to include it on the label. Several printers are supported, and may be selected from the Select Printer Menu. The program may be configured for printers capable of printing compressed superscript text that are not listed through the Custom Printer option.
Since I had a lot of help with printer codes and other suggestions from the Apple II community, I placed Disk Labeller Pro into the public domain and uploaded it to the various BBS's that I frequented at the time, as well as GEnie.
