I'm about to move my 'Amiga' over to the PC and try WinUAE.
The above (AUX) appeared during the move.

~ <=> degree
One form of driver loading on the Amiga is done with simple text files
containing settings in a specific directory (SYS:DOSDrivers/).
Here we have a device, by default, named AUX i.e. a file named AUX. For
this file to be visible with an icon on the desktop (Workbench) among other
things, there must be an AUX.info. Which in turn contains the icon image and
"TOOLTYPES" i.e. settings that are local for that Tool or Project. [These
can be compared with project/tool-local env-variables]
