That could be very tricky if you attempt to read it out -- reading core
is destructive, so if rig up an interface and you don't capture the data
the first time, you might not get a second chance.
People on this list have talked about some film that changes
polarization or color or something in the presence of magnetic fields.
Core is orders of magnitude larger than the bit domains of floppy disks,
so using such a film to read out the core state non-destructively seems
like a good idea.
I haven't read the thread linked to above, so maybe this is already
