Hello Angelo,

the "sample" program is located in the patch filed in the gnat 
system as PR369. So if you go to

and inspect PR369 and download/apply the patch and then look 
into c/src/tests/samples/fileio, you will see the sample 

BTW, you will also need PR368 and PR367 to get everything 
running (these PRs contain modifications for the DOSFS code 
and added drivers for PC386 and MBX8xx).

Yes, since the rtems source tree has been modified (some 
directories added etc) you will have to "bootstrap" the 
autoconf/automake files to get them up to date. So you hae to 
install the proper autoconf/automake versions for rtems-
4.6.0pre1 (see the tool versions specified either in the 
source tree or on the OAR ftp site), and then go to the rtems 
source tree base directory and type


Make sure to have some coffee and a good book nearby, because 
this procedure take a lot of time.
