The XML file says the following..

Some FM-7 and FM-77AV applications can span multiple disk images, and will often be found as one file comprised of multiple images concatenated together. MESS does not support this, so with those images you'll need to split the images into separate files. This software list assumes that there is only one image per file

However I cannot seem to find a tool to do this.

Any suggestions?

I don't use linux and I have no idea of the format of the .d77 disk format. From best I can tell there is no consistent size (maybe defined in the header)?

I'll grab a hex editor and see if there is any consistency in size between the images. I'm just surprised there is not some tool out there for this. Most other systems seem to have various tools for dealing with disk and cassette images and conversion.

.d77/d88/d98 disk images can be simply concatenated together to make a multi-disk image.

Wow! Thanks for the responses everyone! Sorry I was MIA for a little while. Been busy doing other stuff. MESS is such a complicated system. laugh
I'll look into these and get back with you all!
