the "Streamliner" will only append/merge data-segments if they are contiguous, e.g.:
can be merged into $2000-25FF with it; but data-segments with removed zeros (like many of the Homesoft files) will NOT work, since they are not contiguous:
will not merge into one data-segment with Streamliner. Besides, Streamliner is limited to max. 32-38kbytes on the A8 (depending on the DOS you use).
There are better and faster tools - on the PC which can even merge data-segments with removed zeros (by adding zeros again), e.g. :
"Ataricom" by HiasSoft:
works for me under the Win XP command line, use
ataricom filename.ext to view the file / data-segments, then
ataricom -m segment1-segmentxy file-input file-output
to create a file with less data-segments (take care which segments to merge).
or the "Superpacker" by TeBe:
you don`t need to pack the file, simply load it with Superpacker, then tag all segments you want to merge and finally click on "Append Segments" to merge them into one data segment.
P.S.: For SpartaDOS or SDX there is also a tool for this task, but since I never use Sparta, I do not know its name...
