NAME
       mread - low level read (copy) an MSDOS file to Unix

SYNOPSIS
       mread [ -tnm ] msdosfile unixfile

       mread [ -tnm ] msdosfile [ msdosfiles... ] unixdirectory

DESCRIPTION
       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
	      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:/.

BUGS
       Unlike MSDOS, the destination directory may not be omitted.
