bind -a #f /dev
The floppy diskette interface serves a one-level directory giving
access to up to four floppy diskette drives. Each drive is represented
by a data and control file. There are no partitions.
Messages accepted by the ctl file include:
eject Eject the floppy, if possible.
reset Reset the drive.
Format the floppy. The type sets the density and type of
diskette to be formatted; see format in prep(8).
A read of the ctl file returns a string describing the form factor of
the diskette, one of 3½DD, 3½HD, 5¼DD, or 5¼HD.
Floppies are tiny, unreliable and eventually wear out.
