Reading and Writing PC Floppy Disks?

» close window

The Question is:

My alpha 433 au running OpenVMS Alpha v7.1 is
offline for the timebeing.  I do not have MMS,
Mtools, or similar products on the Alpha.
I need to know how I can save files on a floppy from my alpha and have them
 read by a PC?
Or, vise versa?
Is this possible in principle?
or, is it trivial?
Many thanks,
Nasser Barghouty
