Hi Peter.

One of the reasons I did some work was a recent almost total loss of over 300 
floppies going back many years. They had all seized in the cases and refused to 
rotate. I have "ripped" the ones that still work onto my Linux laptop for 
posterity. Qltools comes in handy as I cannot get QPC 4.0.5 to read a floppy 
image. I get not found errors. But I'm running under Wine, which might be 
contributing.

I have qxltools on my laptop but haven't looked at it for ages, I think I had 
problems compiling it - but I can't remember. It might well be in line for some 
tittivation!

Cheers,
Norm.
