IECHost: two commands exposed in iechost-utils

Version 1.6 of my iechost-utils package exposes two additional commands:

  • one for resetting the disk drive, and
  • another for querying the status string through the command channel.

Running them back to back I get:

>iechost-utils.exe -r COM9
IECHost utilities, rel 1.6 - (C) 2018 Luigi Di Fraia
Communicate with an IECHost device to perform common tasks

Resetting... succeeded in 0.01 seconds.
>iechost-utils.exe -s COM9
IECHost utilities, rel 1.6 - (C) 2018 Luigi Di Fraia
Communicate with an IECHost device to perform common tasks

Fetching drive status... succeeded in 0.08 seconds.

Stay tuned for updated packages!
