SW - Show Wad level - Paul Robinson
SW is a program to read a DOOM wad file and show what levels are present
in that wad. The purpose of this is to allow a person finding an unknown
wad to discover how to invoke that wad without having to try all 27
combinations. While some, perhaps most wads are E1M1 or E2M1, many
(especially those continuing a previous scenario) are not; determining
exactly what level and mission the WAD is can be difficult; moreso if the
WAD contains multiple levels.
This program allows you to scan a wad file and read the levels that it
If you don't supply a wad name at the command line, SW will ask for it.
If you omit the extension, SW will try it as is and with the extension
.WAD, and if both fail, it will quit with an error.
If you use the /?, SW will display the Usage requirements and quit.
