NAME
     flcopy — floppy copy

SYNOPSIS
     flcopy [-hr] [-f file] [-t ntracks]

DESCRIPTION
     Flcopy copies the console floppy disk “/dev/floppy” to a file in the cur‐
     rent directory, named “floppy”.  The user is then prompted to change the
     floppy, and enter a carriage return when done.  When a carriage return is
     entered, flcopy copies the file out to the floppy disk.

     The options are as follows:

     -f	     Use file instead of ``/dev/floppy''.

     -h	     Cause flcopy to copy a file named ``floppy'' in the current
	     directory to the console floppy disk.

     -r	     Cause flcopy to copy the floppy to the current directory and then
	     quit.

     -t	     Copy only the first ntracks tracks.

FILES
     floppy	  Temporary file name.
     /dev/floppy  Default floppy device.
