NAME
       mwrite - low level write (copy) a Unix file to MSDOS

SYNOPSIS
       mwrite [ -tnvm ] unixfile msdosfile

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

DESCRIPTION
       In  the	first  form,  mwrite copies the specified Unix file to the named MSDOS file.  The
       second form of the command copies multiple Unix files to the named MSDOS directory.

       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 the target file already exists, and the -n option is not in effect, mwrite asks whether
       or not to overwrite the file.

       Reasonable care is taken to create a valid MSDOS filename.  If an invalid name  is  speci-
       fied, 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  pro-
       tect 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.
