NAME
       Mtools - a collection of tools for manipulating MSDOS files

SYNOPSIS
       mattrib - change MSDOS file attribute flags
       mcd - change MSDOS directory
       mcopy - copy MSDOS files to/from Unix
       mdel - delete an MSDOS file
       mdir - display an MSDOS directory
       mformat - add an MSDOS filesystem to a low-level formatted diskette
       mlabel - make an MSDOS volume label
       mmd - make an MSDOS subdirectory
       mrd - remove an MSDOS subdirectory
       mread - low level read (copy) an MSDOS file to Unix
       mren - rename an existing MSDOS file
       mtype - display contents of an MSDOS file
       mwrite - low level write (copy) a Unix file to MSDOS

DESCRIPTION
       Mtools is a public domain collection of programs to allow Unix systems to read, write, and
       manipulate files on an MSDOS filesystem (typically a diskette).	Each program attempts  to
       emulate the MSDOS equivalent command as closely as practical.

       MSDOS filenames are optionally composed of a drive letter followed by a colon, a subdirec-
       tory, and a filename.  Subdirectory names can use 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 regular expression "pattern matching" routines follow the Unix-style rules.	For exam-
       ple,  '*'  matches  all	MSDOS files in lieu of '*.*'.  The archive, hidden, read-only and
       system attribute bits are ignored during pattern matching.

       All options use the '-' (minus) flag, not '/' as you'd expect in MSDOS.

       The mcd command is used to establish the device and the current working	directory  (rela-
       tive to the MSDOS filesystem), otherwise the default is assumed to be A:/.

       mlabel(1), mmd(1), mread(1), mwrite(1)

BUGS
       An unfortunate side effect of not guessing the proper device (when multiple  disk  capaci-
       ties  are  supported) is an occasional error message from the device driver.  These can be
       safely ignored.
