DESCII v1.0.2 (by David Empson)

This is a command line utility for the ORCA shell (GNO) to extract from BinSCII archives faster than BinSCII. Works on GS and non-GS files. This program runs on GS/OS and ProDOS 16 while using the ORCA/GNO environment and you don't need to revert back to ProDOS 8 as with BinSCII.

Tar v2.01

This is the Unix Tape ARchive utility for the GS. Creates an executable file with documentation. Use 'GSCII+' to decode. Use 'ShrinkIt GS' to expand. Runs on GS/OS under ProDOS 16. Requires GNO.

MacBinary GS v1.0.1

A GS application to allow the decoding and encoding of MacBinary files. MacBinary is the standard used on the Macintosh for the preservation of file attributes when sending files via a modem. Use 'GSCII+' to decode. Use 'ShrinkIt.GS' to expand. Run on GS/OS under ProDOS 16.

CiderPress v3.0.1 (by Andy McFadden) (PC/Windows free/Open Source)

A PC/Windows application to allow the access of many Apple II file formats by a user with a PC. Download version 3.0.1 below or the latest version directly from Faddensoft.

DiskDup v2.9 (Macintosh)

A Macintosh application to allow the creation of GS boot disks on all Macs, even those with manual inject drives (drives that you need to push the disk the full way in as opposed to the older auto-inject drives that will suck in the disk once you have pushed it about 3/4 of the way in). Even DiskCopy doesn't do that in the latter released drives as the GS used auto-inject drives and DiskCopy required the same type drive. Use a Mac unstuffing program to create the executable.

ProTYPE v1.1 (Macintosh) by Dirk Froehling

A Macintosh application that allows users to create Apple II files with the proper filetype. ProTYPE converts files you drag & drop on it to make them more useable with Apple II computers. It will strip resource forks from text files, type the files correctly and convert Binscii files. It will also preserve file/aux types of all kinds of files inside a Binscii wrapper. It is scriptable (understands AppleEvents) and can be used as a helper application for Internet programs so you can tell Netscape or Anarchie to postprocess all .bsq files with ProTYPE, for example. Author has classified it as GSWare-ware meaning pay the shareware fees on a GS product you're using and this product is free. Use a Mac unstuffing program to create the executable.
