Authors/Port authors:

DSKXTRCT extracts the original files from DSK files into a subdirectory, avoiding the need to recreate diskettes with LoadDSKF.

This is useful if the desire is to copy the original files onto a hard drive without creating intermediate diskettes. One of the major purposes for DSKXTRCT is to create a hard drive subdirectory directly from IBM fixpak DSK files that can be used to apply the fixpak, bypassing the creation of diskettes. DSKCOMPR compares the files in DSK files to a target subdirectory or diskette. This is useful for verifying that LoadDSKF correctly created the diskette. The compare of a DSK file to a diskette is a case where DSKCOMPR fills a need not satisfied by LOADDSKF.
