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. It can be additionally compiled for Win32 systems. The source is available as a GNU zipped tape archive. Additionally, you can get Win32 executables.
