mwrite - low level write (copy) a Unix file to MSDOS
mwrite [ -tnvm ] unixfile msdosfile
mwrite [ -tnvm ] unixfile [ unixfiles... ] msdosdirectory
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
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:/.
mcd(1), mcopy(1), mread(1)
Unlike MSDOS, the destination directory may not be omitted.
