floppy - floppy disk interface
bind -a #f /dev
The floppy disk interface serves a one-level directory giving access to
up to four floppy disk drives. Each drive is represented by a data and
control file. There are no partitions.
Messages accepted by the ctl file include:
eject Eject the floppy, if possible.
reset Reset the drive.
(Not on the Nextstation) Format the floppy. The type sets the
density and type of disk to be formatted; see format in prep(8).
A read of the ctl file returns a string describing the form factor of
the disk, one of 3DD, 3HD, 5DD, or 5HD.
