Eject floppy disks (PowerPC)

This tip is valid for: Both BeOS and Haiku

You have a MacOS box. There’s no eject button on the floppy drive (not counting the last-resort paperclip trick).

You put in a floppy disk. It’s not BFS, HFS, or another BeOS-readable format. You can’t mount it. So how do you eject it?

Simple: Use the “eject” command from the shell, and the disk pops right out.
