A bit more on the RX03 floppies and why putr probably
The home block for these contains the usual "DECRT11A" and "RT11A"
as well as the Rad-50 "V3A", cluster size and first directory segment
pointer, but everything else in the block is set to ASCII space (hex
20), including the checksum.
Is this usual for these floppies?
No, but it's what (at least some versions of) RSTS's "FIT" utility does
when initializing a directory. If you'd be willing to send me a .DSK file,
I'd be happy to have a little talk with PUTR. It's loooong overdue for an
upgrade (and I'm loooong overdue for finishing a portable version I started
ages ago, as a set of FUSE drivers I was going to roll into a utility that
didn't rely on Linux's FUSE and would run anywhere).
