How to salvage old source code from a QNX2 diskette

Postby Ilija » Thu Nov 20, 2003 9:48 am

I have an old QNX2 diskette with some old days source code. Since I changed the busines some years ago, I have no QNX computer available.

Is there a Windows or DOS or Linux utility to read text files from a QNX2 diskette?

It seems UltraEdit is a powerfull tool, but not enough if one does not know the QNX2 diskette format.

Is there an online source to get this knowledge from?

Your best bet is to use DOS format disks.

there is a free mtools that people use to read/write DOS floppies in other Unix. see this for details: http://mtools.linux.lu/

JC has ported mtools to QNX2 and you can download it from quics:
