Post Unable to find fdio (floppy disk control operations) on solaris machine 5.11 11.4.0.15.0


Hi

I am compiling my application code on solaris 5.11 11.4.0.15.0 , In application code I used "fdio" related code . The Solaris box do not have <sys/fdio.h>.

How to get the fdio package ?

Thanks.

Floppy disk support has been removed from Solaris 11:
Quote:
On-board floppy drive controller and related interfaces and utilities are not supported on both the x86 and the SPARC hardware platforms. However, these two platforms continue to support the external USB floppy drives.
This header file might have disappeared due to the former end-of-feature.

To be able to compile code requiring it, you might try to use an opensource copy.
