This package allows to access CP/M file systems similar to the well-known
mtools package, which accesses MSDOS file systems. I use it for file
exchange with a Z80-PC simulator, but it works on floppy devices as well.
Currently it contains:
o cpmls - list sorted directory with output similar to ls, DIR, P2DOS
DIR and CP/M3 DIR[FULL]
o cpmcp - copy files from and to CP/M file systems
o cpmrm - erase files from CP/M file systems
o cpmchmod - change file permissions
o cpmchattr - change file attributes
o mkfs.cpm - make a CP/M file system
o fsck.cpm - check and repair a CP/M file system (only simple errors
can be repaired so far). Some images of broken file systems are provided
o fsed.cpm - view CP/M file system
o manual pages for everything including the CP/M file system format
All CP/M file system features are supported. Password protection
is ignored, because passwords are easy to decrypt, but a pseudo file
[passwd] contains them, if you are curious what your old password has
been. The disk label is read as special file [label]. User numbers
are specified as user:file.
Cpmtools should compile and work out of the box on each POSIX compliant
system. It can be additionally compiled for Win32 systems. The source
