mcopy - copy MSDOS files to/from Unix
mcopy [ -tnvm ] sourcefile targetfile
mcopy [ -tnvm ] sourcefile [ sourcefiles... ] targetdirectory
Mcopy copies the specified file to the named file, or copies multiple files to the named
directory. The source and target can be either MSDOS or Unix files.
The use of a drive letter designation on the MSDOS files, 'a:' for example, determines the
direction of the transfer. A missing drive designation implies a Unix file whose path
starts in the current directory
Mcopy will allow the following command line options:
t Text file transfer. Mcopy will translate incoming carriage return/line feeds to
n No warning. Mcopy will not warn the user when overwriting an existing file.
v Verbose mode.
m Preserve the file modification time.
If the target file already exists, and the -n option is not in effect, mcopy asks whether
or not to overwrite the file.
MSDOS subdirectory names are supported with either the '/' or '\' separator. The use of
the '\' separator or wildcards will require the names to be enclosed in quotes to protect
them from the shell.
The mcd command may be used to establish the device and the current working directory
(relative to MSDOS), otherwise the default is A:/.
mcd(1), mread(1), mwrite(1)
Unlike MSDOS, the destination directory may not be omitted.
The '+' operator (append) from MSDOS is not supported.
No other Mtools command requires the use of a drive letter designation on MSDOS files.
