NAME
       mcopy - copy MSDOS files to/from Unix

SYNOPSIS
       mcopy [ -tnvm ] sourcefile targetfile

       mcopy [ -tnvm ] sourcefile [ sourcefiles... ] targetdirectory

DESCRIPTION
       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
	      line feeds.

       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:/.

SEE ALSO
       mcd(1), mread(1), mwrite(1)

BUGS
       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.
