#1: perl utility

Posted on 2008-04-23 09:28:05 by Andy

I want to get some idea about making a USB drive DOS bootable..in
windows....

I want to make a USB drive DOS bootable ..and it should be a windows
utility which I want to develop in perl.

Can anybody give me some idea about this ?

Not much perl related here. You need to learn about accessing raw drives,
parsing partition tables, installing bootrecords, etc, etc...

Once you know about these, writing the program in perl will be rather
trivial.

Pretty much agreed here. FYI, if you don't *have* to use windows, linux
is probably a much better choice; I wrote a few USB-bootable tools
starting from sysresccd: http://www.sysresccd.org/Main_Page

Also agreed.
