  Description     : Utilities for communicating with Commodore IEC serial bus devices

Taken from the blurb I just wrote as description for the main package
(the source package also produces lib, -dev and -source packages):

 OpenCBM is a collection of utilities, a library and a kernel driver that
 allows for communicating with and controlling devices via the Commodore
 (CBM) IEC serial bus.  This bus was used by such computers as the Commodore
 VIC-20 and the Commodore 64 for connecting disk drives and printers through
 a round 6-pin DIN connector.
 This package provides a generic utility for controlling serial devices
 (cbmctrl), as well as others to perform specific tasks such as formatting
 a floppy or copying a file to/from a disk drive.
