Fatfsys & mount_dos

I just upgraded to QNX 4.25 D. I noticed the new executables
Fatfsys and mount_dos
but there is nothing in the helpviewer on them.

I assume that they can be used to read/write a FAT32 (Yippie!)
but how do I use them?
Is there any on-line documentation?

There are no doc updates/additions in this patch but there is some info
in the use message. ie “use Fatfsys”

I use Fatfsys all the time so I can back up some of my data to a Fat32
partition.

“Fatfsys c=/dev/hd0t12” will mount the Fat32 partition referenced by
/dev/hd0t12 as /dos/c.
There are MANY options for it however, and you can move the target mount
point. mount_dos is used by Fatfsys to perform the mount (I believe you
could do a “mount -t” with the proper type on /dev/hd0t12 and it would mount
using mount_dos)
