How to copy programs into a floppydisk

Question

Hi,

I'm new in this mod. I'm trying to program robots but the editor it's very small and I prefer to develop my programs in a computer with the shedit editor.  I know that there is a way to copy the programs that I've deloped into a floppydisk and then copy that program from the floppydisk to my robot but I tried a few comands and I can't do that.

What comands should I use?

What tipe of floppydisk I need to use?

 

Thanks

I'm not sure exactly but the leading slash may be throwing you off..

Follow my instructions from your home dir so we can be sure to replicate what I just tested.

On source computer:

/home # cp ./main.lua /mnt/38d/test.lua

/home # ls /mnt/38d  #this is to check we're not crazy and the file has been copied to the floppy

On robot:

/home # cp /mnt/38d/test.lua ./main.lua

/home # ls . #list the current dir to check that we have copied our file successfully

 

Run man cp to get a better grip on what the cp command can do.

Insert the floppy into a drive then in the Shell run ls /mnt to find your floppy. Let's say it was /mnt/5ae.

Run cp my_file /mnt/5ae/my_file

I may be rusty so if you need help on shell programs run the man program with the name of a program for usage instructions.

man cp

I wrote this in my computer: (38d is my floppy I think, bcos I tried to run the ls comand whit the floppy and without it and 38d it's the number that appear and disappear)

/mnt # cp main.lua /38d/test.lua  (And the computer didn't show an error so okay)

 

Then I went to my robot with the floppy and I wrote this

/mnt # cp /38d/test.lua testfloppy.lua

 

And the robot said: No such file or directory

 

What am I doing wrong?
