Cpmtools 2.21

This package allows to access CP/M file systems similar to the well-known mtools package, which accesses MSDOS file systems. I use it for file exchange with a Z80-PC simulator, but it works on floppy devices as well. Currently it contains:

All CP/M file system features are supported. Password protection is ignored, because passwords are easy to decrypt, but a pseudo file [passwd] contains them, if you are curious what your old password has been. The disk label is read as special file [label]. User numbers are specified as user:file.

Cpmtools should compile and work out of the box on each POSIX compliant system. Once build support for Windows was contributed, but that is not maintained and likely needs some work. The source is available as a GNU zipped tape archive.
