A Fully Supported Method for Reading and Updating EXT2 and EXT3 Filesystems from CMS

EXT2TOOL is a commercially supported REXX function module and application library that allows CMS applications to directly access and modify data files stored on Linux ext2 and ext3 formatted minidisks attached to INACTIVE Linux systems.

EXT2TOOL is especially valuable for users creating cloned Linux guests, or other applications where updating a Linux-hosted configuration or data files is necessary, but other access methods such as NFS or DHCP are not yet available.

The EXT2TOOL version of this package includes updated user documentation, build scripts, CMS help files for the API and example application, and periodic defect maintenance.
