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-3.9.1pl2906: description + notes
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.
