Dear All,

Brutal Deluxe Software is proud to introduce Fishhead, the Caped
Copier, to the Apple II community.

Fishhead is a GS/OS desktop file copier application. It offers several
features which make it a powerful software for diskette and file
preservation purposes:

- Attributes preservation
All copied files keep their original date, time and other
attributes (e.g. invisible or locked) information
- Batch mode
Removable devices can be ejected and Fishhead will wait for the
next medium to be inserted before copying it, and so on
- Error handling
Fishhead does not stop on read errors, it copies as much data as
possible
- History log
The program displays and saves a log file including the result for
each copied file from the source disk

Fishhead recursively copies files from a selected volume by chuncks of
256 bytes. The main idea is to recover as much data as possible from a
bad medium. Fishhead has been tested (for months) on an Apple IIgs ROM
01 and ROM 3, with Appleshare (localtalk, netatalk) under System
6.0.1.
