Name
       mcd - change MSDOS directory

Note of warning
       This manpage has been automatically generated from mtools's texinfo documentation, and may
       not be entirely accurate or complete.  See the end of this man page for details.

Description
       The mcd command is used to change the mtools working directory on the MS-DOS disk. It uses
       the following syntax:

	  mcd [msdosdirectory]

       Without	arguments,  mcd reports the current device and working directory.  Otherwise, mcd
       changes the current device and current working directory relative to an MS-DOS  file  sys-
       tem.

       The  environmental  variable MCWD may be used to locate the file where the device and cur-
       rent working directory information is stored.  The default is `$HOME/.mcwd'.   Information
       in this file is ignored if the file is more than 6 hours old.

       Mcd returns 0 on success or 1 on failure.

       Unlike  MS-DOS versions of CD, mcd can be used to change to another device. It may be wise
       to remove old `.mcwd' files at logout.

Viewing the texi doc
       This manpage has been automatically generated from mtools's  texinfo  documentation.  How-
       ever,  this  process is only approximative, and some items, such as crossreferences, foot-
       notes and indices are lost in this translation  process.   Indeed,  these  items  have  no
       appropriate  representation in the manpage format.  Moreover, not all information has been
       translated into the manpage version.  Thus I strongly advise you to use the original  tex-
       info doc.  See the end of this manpage for instructions how to view the texinfo doc.

       *      To generate a printable copy from the texinfo doc, run the following commands:

		     ./configure; make dvi; dvips mtools.dvi

       *      To generate a html copy,	run:

		     ./configure; make html

       A premade html can be found at `http://www.gnu.org/software/mtools/manual/mtools.html'

       *      To generate an info copy (browsable using emacs' info mode), run:

		     ./configure; make info

       The  texinfo  doc  looks most pretty when printed or as html.  Indeed, in the info version
       certain examples are difficult to read due to the quoting conventions used in info.
