Insert DOS floppy. $ cd dirname Change to desired Unix directory. $ doswrite -a unixfile dosfile.tex Write to DOS floppy. There are 977920 bytes of free space. The voice of DOS.
Note that the DOS floppy needs be formatted before writing to
it. This can be done on your PC or with the AIX command dosformat. For more information on this and other DOS
commands, check the manual with man dosread. As a further
example, now we examine and read the Fortran program ZROOTS.FOR
from a floppy:
$dosdir List files on floppy. VANDER.FOR ZROOTS.FOR The files. There are 976896 bytes of free space. The voice of DOS. $dosdir -l Long list of DOS directory. VANDER.FOR 769 Mar 26 1992 17:45:25 One line of many.
There are 976896 bytes of free space. The voice of DOS. $dosread -a ZROOTS.FOR Read ZROOTS.FOR from floppy. $ls List files in current directory. ZROOTS.FOR Yes, it's there now. $mv ZROOTS.FOR zroots.f Rename for Unix.
