Abstract

To adequately test software which interfaces to a diskette drive it is necessary to include tests of temporary, or recoverable, errors. Previously this has been done using various hardware tools to cause an error at a particular time. A new technique was developed to easily cause temporary diskette errors without requiring additional hardware.
