Could you please give us your tool? Possibly with its source? Does it support ABC80 and ABC800?
The goal is to have cross-platform code that takes a raw binary and creates usable/runnable images for the ABC80 and ABC800. We would like to integrate this into the Z88DK tool kit (free and open source devkit for 70 differemt z80-systems).

I have a tool called abcdisk that can build an ABC-DOS (UFD-DOS, really) disk image.
