mcd - change MSDOS directory

 

Note of warning

This manpage has been automatically generated from mtools's texinfo documentation, and may not be entirely accurate or complete. See the end of this man page for details.

 

Description

The mcd command is used to change the mtools working directory on the MS-DOS disk. It uses the following syntax:


 

mcd [msdosdirectory]


 

Without arguments, mcd reports the current device and working directory. Otherwise, mcd changes the current device and current working directory relative to an MS-DOS file system.

The environmental variable MCWD may be used to locate the file where the device and current working directory information is stored. The default is ∞$HOME/.mcwdIntegral. Information in this file is ignored if the file is more than 6 hours old.

Mcd returns 0 on success or 1 on failure.

Unlike MS-DOS versions of CD, mcd can be used to change to another device. It may be wise to remove old ∞.mcwdIntegral files at logout.

Viewing the texi doc

This manpage has been automatically generated from mtools's texinfo documentation. However, this process is only approximative, and some items, such as crossreferences, footnotes and indices are lost in this translation process. Indeed, these items have no appropriate representation in the manpage format. Moreover, not all information has been translated into the manpage version. Thus I strongly advise you to use the original texinfo doc. See the end of this manpage for instructions how to view the texinfo doc.

To generate a printable copy from the texinfo doc, run the following commands:
 
    ./configure; make dvi; dvips mtools.dvi


 

*   
To generate a html copy, run:
 
    ./configure; make html


  A premade html can be found at http://www.gnu.org/software/mtools/manual/mtools.htmlIntegral

*   
To generate an info copy (browsable using emacs' info mode), run:
 
    ./configure; make info


 

The texinfo doc looks most pretty when printed or as html. Indeed, in the info version certain examples are difficult to read due to the quoting conventions used in info.
