taptap is a command line utility to manipulate Oric tap files.

Oric range of computers (Oric-1, Oric Atmos, and Oric Telestrat) are a range of 8 bits computers produced in the 80's.

Oric tap files are the the most common types of image files used for the Oric emulators (Euphoric, Oricutron, ...), with the DSK files wich are floppy disks. Those files are digital versions of the analog tapes used to save and load program from or to those micro-computers.

You will find some detailed information about the tap file format in the documentation folder of this project.
