I've been using TI Image Tool to manipulate disk images, and love it.  So simple to use!  However, there are a large number of Geneve programs I'd like to use, and they're on WHTECH as ARK files.  Is there a good way to extract these with a similar tool?  I already know I can use TIIT to create a blank disk, move the ARK file there, run emulation, run Archiver, and un-ark the files, but is there a tool that will do this OUTSIDE of running an emulated session?

I think TI99Dir can open ARK files.

TIImageTool can open ARK files, treating them like directories.

Well, I tried ImageTool before I posted, and I get "Unknown format or image corrupted."  Does the ARK file first have to be on a TI Disk volume file (DSK file)?  These were just downloaded directly as ARKs.

Stupid me...instead of just ASKING, I could TRY adding the ARK to an empty image.  And of course, that works just fine.  I hadn't thought of trying it that way.  Thanks for the help, all.

For some particular reason, I named the tool TI-Image-Tool. :-)
