In the first form, mread copies the specified MSDOS file to the named Unix file. The second 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 line feeds.
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:/.
