dosread - read a file from an MS-DOS diskette [IBM] SYNOPSIS
dosread [-a] drive file OPTIONS
dosread C g/adv >adv # Read file g/adv from hard disk dosread -a A prog.c >x # Read ASCII file prog.c from drive A DESCRIPTION
Dosread reads one MS-DOS file and writes it on standard output. The file name must use slash, not backslash as a separator. ASCII files have the final CTRL-Z stripped, and carriage return plus line feed are mapped to line feed only, the usual MINIX convention. See dosdir on the use of single letter drive codes.

dxmtools - DOS Tools Graphical User Interface for manipulating files on an MSDOS diskette SYNOPSIS
/usr/bin/X11/dxmtools OPTIONS
The DOS Tools application, dxmtools, uses a graphical user interface to copy files to and from an MSDOS formatted diskette to manipulate files on that diskette, in the same manner as the mtools(1) commands, which are accessed from the command line interface. The DOS Tools application accepts the standard X11 resource options. For more information, see the X(1X) reference page Use the DOS Tools application to: Copy a diskette file to Tru64 UNIX Copy Tru64 UNIX files to the diskette Create a directory on the diskette Delete diskette files Format a diskette Change the diskette volume label Change the archive, read-only, hidden, and system attribute bits on a diskette file Display the contents of a diskette file Find a diskette file by its name, size, or attribute settings Rename a diskette file. MSDOS filenames are optionally composed of a drive letter followed by a colon, optional subdirectories, and a filename. Subdirectory names can use either the '/' or '' separator. The current working directory relative to the diskette is A:/. The regular expression pattern matching routines follow the UNIX-style rules. For example, an asterisk (*), in place of asterisks separated by a dot (.) that is *.*, matches all MSDOS files. The archive, hidden, read-only, and system attribute bits are ignored during pattern matching. The DOS Tools application requires a diskette properly installed on the system. The DOS Tools application addresses a device named /dev/disk/floppy; a symbolic link between the diskette device and /dev/disk/floppy is required. Online help is available for the dxmtools application. To get help, click on any Help button or use the Help pull-down menu. The DOS Tools application can be invoked from: The CDE Application Manager. Application Group: Desktop_Apps Desktop_Apps Subgroup: dxmtools EXAMPLES
Invoke the DOS Tools application from the command line. /usr/bin/X11/dxmtools Open the DOS Tools help volume from the command line without running the application. /usr/dt/bin/dthelpview -h /usr/dt/appconfig/help/C/dxmtools.sdl FILES
