Short:        Patch NSD64 devices to support TD64
Author:       Fredrik Wikstrom

Usage:

Run <>NIL: td64patch device [unit]

device = a1ide.device or other storage device
[unit] = optional, any unit on device that can be opened with OpenDevice()
(default = 0)

The patch can be disabled at any time using C:Break (use C:Status to obtain the
process number).

This program can be used to make TD64 filesystems such as the m68k EXT2, NTFS
and FAT filesystem binaries work on OS4 with partitions that are >4GB or are
positioned outside the first 4GB on a harddrive.

Changes:

(17-Jun-2008)
 - Added an untested OS3.x version

0.3 (16-Oct-2007)
 - Removed checking for the "seek" commands as some devices may not support
   these (f.e. diskimage.device doesn't as it's not a h/w device)

0.2 (16-Dec-2006)
 - Added nsd devicequery check to see that the device is a trackdisk-type device
 - Checks that the device doesn't already support TD64
 - Checks if the device supports NSD 64-bit commands
 - Added FORCE switch that makes td64patch skip all tests mentioned above (only
   use this if you know what you're doing!)
