NAME
       mren - rename an existing MSDOS file

SYNOPSIS
       mren [ -v ] sourcefile targetfile

DESCRIPTION
       Mren renames an existing file on an MSDOS filesystem.

       Mren will allow the following command line option:

       v      Verbose mode.  Display the new filename if the name supplied is invalid.

       Reasonable  care  is  taken  to create a valid MSDOS filename.  If an invalid MSDOS target
       name is specified, mren will change the name (and prompt the user to accept or reject  the
       new name if the verbose mode is set).

       The  path  component of the target filename (if supplied) is ignored.  In other words, you
       may not use mren to move a file from one subdirectory to another.

       Mren may be used to rename directories.

       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
       MSDOS can't use REN to rename directories.
