My customer wants me to copy a data file from his UNIX box, and transfer to windows basic PC. My question is how can I find the file in UNIX box, copy it out into DOS/Windows format.
To find files in a unix box use find example:
find /home/whoever -name 'h*' -print it will will display all file starting with 'h' in the specified directory.
copy it out into DOS/Windows format:
insert a floppy disk in unix box's floppy drive then type
mount -t vfat /mnt/floppy
cp yourfile /mnt/floppy
hey what i said is what i am doing with my redhat linux. i don't know it will be suitable to you
hopes it's not a blunder
You can also copy Unix files and save to DOS format using the <B>mcopy</B> command and other DOS utilities for UNIX.
AIX gives you the dosread & doswrite commands.
