There is a tools directory now under http://bitsavers.org/bits/Xerox/Alto
which has a couple of things Larry Stewart came up with years ago.
aar will print out a directory of an Alto disk image
tdisk is the disk imager. The original version worked one bit at a time
out the Alto II utility port. I modified it to run 4 and 8 bits at a time
into a PC parallel port. The MacOS 9 version of the PC side is also there. The
code is ugly, most of it is code to probe the PCI bus to find the parallel port
There was never a program written to take a disk image and copy it back to a
real Alto disk pack.
I also uploaded two tries at recovering a Mazewar executable pack.
