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