Name

nlib76 - display and extract files from a CDC 7600 library file

Synopsis

nlib76 [ library-name ]

Description

nlib76 is used to display the contents and extract (possibly translated text) files from a CDC 7600-generated library file. The library file would have been generated on the CDC 7600 computer with either the utility lib or lix. library-name is the name of such a file that resides in the current working directory; if omitted, nlib76 will prompt with "File?" for the name of a library file.

nlib76 is an interactive utility. After it has successfully opened the library file, it displays a select-option-prompt listing the possible options.

Options

h|help
explains the other options
l|list [ blank-separated-file-name-list ]
lists information about all files in the library file or just those named in the list. The information includes the file name, address in the library, length, read/write/execute access, checksum, and date and time. The files are listed in the order in which they appear in the library.
s|scan
translates as text and prints the beginning of all files in the library or just those named in the list. Nontext files may appear as garbage. The object of scan is to help determine whether text files need to be extracted.
x|extract
makes a local copy of all files in the library or just those named in the list. The copied file will have the same name, or if a file by that name already exists, it will be given the name with a percent sign (%) prepended. If that name is also in use, nlib76 will issue an error message and the file will not be extracted. Files extracted by this option are not translated or converted. The trans utility is able to handle many data representations and translations
t|text [ blank-separated-file-name-list ]
extracts and translates as text all files in the library or just those named in the list. The translated file will have the same name, or if a file by that name already exists, it will be given the name with a percent sign (%) prepended. If that name is also in use, nlib76 will issue an error message and the file will not be extracted. Nontext files should be extracted and converted to readable form using the trans utility.
q|quit
terminates nlib76.
