Copying to or from Diskettes (flcopy Command)

You can copy a diskette (opened as /dev/rfd0) to a file named floppy created in the current directory with the flcopy command. The message: Change floppy, hit return when done appears as needed. The flcopy command then copies the floppy file to the diskette.

For example, to copy /dev/rfd1 to the floppy file in the current directory, enter:

flcopy -f /dev/rfd1 -r

For example, to copy the first 100 tracks of the diskette, enter:

flcopy -f /dev/rfd1 -t 100

See the flcopy command in the AIX Version 4.3 Commands Reference for the exact syntax.
