Pathing

EasyCLI uses a specific pathing format to generalize the description of devices, drives, paths and files.

Terms

  • device - Physical device such as a 1541 disk drive. Valid values are from 7 to 24.
  • drive - Physical drive in a device, such as an 8050 dual disk drive's second drive. Any 8-bit number is valid, but 0 is default and should be used in almost all cases.
  • path - The list of nested directories that represent the current location on the storage device. Some devices, such as the 15x1 devices, do not support directories.
  • file - A specific file or a pattern representing multiple files.

Examples

8#0:

Represents device 8, drive 0. Since no path is specified the current path is used. Also, no file is specified.

9#0://

Represents device 9, drive 0, root directory, but no file.

10#0::file1

Represents device 10, drive 0, current directory, file, "file1"

8#0::*

Represents device 8, drive 0, current directory, all files

9#0://test:a*

Represents device 9, drive 0, directory "//test", and all files starting with "a"

10#0:test:file1

Represents device 10, drive 0, a directory off the current directory called "test", and a file called "file1".

Notes

It is important to remember that all files must be preceded with a colon (:) character.

Example:

copy file1 file2

is not the same as

copy :file1 :file2
