[colorforth] Obtaining binary block images from boot disk

The file handling for writing blocks to a FAT-formatted floppy is to
cumbersome.  For Linux users I wrote a script (bcp - block copy) that
copies from the bootable floppy the needed blocks to binary images.

#! /bin/bash
# bcp: copy blocks from bootable colorForth floppy to file
if [ $# != 3 ]; then
  echo "Usage: ${0##*/} block count filename"
  exit 1

dd if=/dev/fd0 bs=1024 skip=$1 count=$2 of=$3
