Just put the floppy in the drive (empty one), type the following, it will automatically ask you to insert the other disks disks one by one in the process

arj a a:\library.arj *.*

*.* are the files, specify the path if needed. Say files are in c:\lib, instead of *.* should be c:\lib\*.*

actually the correct way is to tell arj the volume size in advance.


arj -ar -v1440 destination source

(actually that exact example is in the docs)

The syntax i suggested works with ALL ARJ versions that _support_ volume spanning. IF the syntax doesnt work, it doesnt support spanning at all.

The syntax is

  arj a -vv -va -v1440 a:\xxx

After that just swap in the diskette when the computer instructed so....
