amostools - tools to work with AMOS programs

* dumpamos: extract the contents of AMOS source code and memory banks
* listamos: list AMOS source code as plain text
* unlockamos: unlock "locked" procedures in AMOS source code

Usage
=====

Extract banks attached to source code:

$ dumpamos source.amos

Extract sprites, pictures, samples from source or banks:

$ dumpamos source.amos sprites.abk pic1.abk samps.abk

Use input filenames as a prefix for the output filenames:

$ dumpamos -p source.amos

List AMOS programs:

$ listamos source.amos

List AMOS programs that use 3rd-party extensions:

$ listamos -e extensions/CRAFT.Lib-V1.00
-e extensions/MusiCRAFT.Lib-V1.00
source.amos

$ listamos -e23=extensions/Dump.Lib-V1.0
source.amos # you can load extensions in non-standard slots

List AMOS programs using the extensions configured in your own AMOS setup:

$ listamos -c myamos/AMOS1_3_Pal.Env -d myamos/AMOS_System source.amos
$ listamos -c myamos/AMOS1_3_Pal.Env -d myamos/AMOS_System source.amos
$ listamos -c myamos/s/AMOSPro_Interpreter_Config -d myamos/APSystem source.amos

Unlock AMOS programs with locked procedures:

$ unlockamos Fold.Acc *.AMOS

About Extensions
================

AMOS supports [extensions](https://www.exotica.org.uk/wiki/AMOS_extensions) to its core language.

AMOS provides four standard extensions (Music, Compact, Requester, Serial/IOPorts),
but many other extensions exist.

Extensions must be loaded into a "slot" to use them. There are 25
slots. When you use extension instructions, AMOS only stores the slot
number and a token table offset in your source code.

So, to list programs written using an extension, you need that exact
extension, and it needs to be loaded in the correct slot.

`listamos` has the four standard extensions built in, and for your
convenience, the `extensions/` directory contains as many extensions
as I can find.
