dxmtools - DOS Tools Graphical User Interface for manipulating
files on an MSDOS diskette
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)
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
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.
