mtools: Utilities to directly access DOS disks in Unix1

This directory contains mtools. Mtools is a collection of utilities to access MS-DOS disks from GNU and Unix without mounting them. It supports Win'95 style long file names, OS/2 Xdf disks and 2m disks (store up to 1992k on a high density 3 1/2 disk). In addition to file access, it supports many FAT-specific features: volume labels, FAT-specific file attributes (hidden, system, ...), "bad block" map maintenance, access to remote floppy drives, Iomega ZIP disk protection, "secure" erase, display of file's on-disk layout, etc.
