mread - low level read (copy) an MSDOS file to Unix
mread [ -tnm ] msdosfile unixfile
mread [ -tnm ] msdosfile [ msdosfiles... ] unixdirectory
In the first form, mread copies the specified MSDOS file to the named Unix file. The sec-
ond form of the command copies multiple MSDOS files to the named Unix directory.
Mread will allow the following command line options:
t Text file transfer. Mread will translate incoming carriage return/line feeds to
n No warning. Mread will not warn the user when overwriting an existing file.
m Preserve the file modification times.
If the target file already exists, and the -n option is not in effect, mread 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), mcopy(1), mtype(1), mwrite(1)
Unlike MSDOS, the destination directory may not be omitted.
