MLABEL(1) General Commands Manual MLABEL(1)NAME
mlabel - make an MSDOS volume label
mlabel [ -v ] drive:
Mlabel displays the current volume label, if present, and prompts the user for a new volume label. To delete an existing volume label,
press return at the prompt.
Mlabel will allow the following command line option:
v Verbose mode. Display the new volume label if the label supplied is invalid.

the new label if the verbose mode is set).

mlabel - make an MSDOS volume label
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.
The mlabel command adds a volume label to a disk. Its syntax is: mlabel [-vcsn] [-N serial] drive:[new_label]
Mlabel displays the current volume label, if present. If new_label is not given, and if neither the c nor the s options are set, it prompts
the user for a new volume label. To delete an existing volume label, press return at the prompt.
Reasonable care is taken to create a valid MS-DOS volume label. If an invalid label is specified, mlabel changes the label (and displays
the new label if the verbose mode is set). Mlabel returns 0 on success or 1 on failure.
Mlabel supports the following options:
c Clears an existing label, without prompting the user
s Shows the existing label, without prompting the user.
n Assigns a new (random) serial number to the disk
Sets the supplied serial number. The serial number should be supplied as an 8 digit hexadecimal number, without spaces
Mtools' texinfo doc
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 repre-
sentation 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://mtools.linux.lu' and also at: `http://www.tux.org/pub/knaff/mtools'
* 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.

No problem. You don't need a cross platform Gui toolkit like Gtk and Qt.
And the code and syntax is also not more or less than others.
