Documentation for un-gl & re-gl
-------------------------------

These are quick and dirty programs I wrote to explore GRASP (.gl)
files.

un-gl Copyright 1992 by George Dinwiddie
Version 1.00 Distribute freely.
USAGE: un-gl
Breaks each GRASP (.gl) file in filelist down
into its component files.

UN-GL takes a GRASP file and breaks it into its component parts. The
original filenames are used, and will overwrite any files of the same
name. It is advisable to run this in an empty directory. These will
generally include .CLP and .PIC files, though may also include .GIF
files. There will also be at least one .TXT file that controls the
animation. For the format of the animation commands, you'll just
have to look at a few examples. OR you could buy a copy of GRASP.

re-gl Copyright 1992 by George Dinwiddie
Version 1.00 Distribute freely.
USAGE: re-gl
Recombines files into a GRASP (.gl) file.
Output is placed in file named "1.gl"

RE-GL can take all these files and put them back together into one so
that GRASPRT can run it. The output of RE-GL is always "1.gl" and
will overwrite any file of that name that already exists.

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read: http://www.os2museum.com/wp/mtswslnk/
