NAME
     fl — console floppy interface

DESCRIPTION
     This is a simple interface to the DEC RX01 floppy disk unit, which is
     part of the console LSI-11 subsystem for VAX-11/780s.  Access is given to
     the entire floppy consisting of 77 tracks of 26 sectors of 128 bytes.

     All I/O is raw; the seek addresses in raw transfers should be a multiple
     of 128 bytes and a multiple of 128 bytes should be transferred, as in
     other “raw” disk interfaces.

FILES
     /dev/floppy

DIAGNOSTICS
     None.

SEE ALSO
     arff(8)

HISTORY
     The fl driver appeared in 4.0BSD.

BUGS
     Multiple console floppies are not supported.

     If a write is given with a count not a multiple of 128 bytes then the
     trailing portion of the last sector will be zeroed.
