mwrite [ -tnvm ] unixfile msdosfile mwrite [ -tnvm ] unixfile [ unixfiles... ] msdosdirectory DESCRIPTION

Mwrite will allow the following command line options: t Text file transfer. Mwrite will translate incoming line feeds to carriage return/line feeds. n No warning. Mwrite will not warn the user when overwriting an existing file. v Verbose mode. Display the new filename if the Unix filename requires conversion. m Preserve the file modification times.

If an invalid name is specified, mwrite will change the name (and display the new name if the verbose mode is set). MSDOS subdirectory names are 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.
