mtools

 
 Introduction
 ************
 
 Mtools is a public domain collection of tools to allow Unix systems to
 manipulate MS-DOS files: read, write, and move around files on an MS-DOS
 filesystem (typically a floppy disk).  Where reasonable, each program
 attempts to emulate the MS-DOS equivalent command. However, unnecessary
 restrictions and oddities of DOS are not emulated. For instance, it is
 possible to move subdirectories from one subdirectory to another.
 
    Mtools is sufficient to give access to MS-DOS filesystems.  For
 instance, commands such as `mdir a:' work on the `a:' floppy without
 any preliminary mounting or initialization (assuming the default
 `/etc/mtools.conf' works on your machine).  With mtools, one can change
 floppies too without unmounting and mounting.
