Name
       mclasserase - erase memory cards

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 mclasserase command is used to wipe memory cards by overwriting it three times: first with 0xff, then with 0x00, then with 0xff  again.
       The command uses the following syntax:

	  mclasserase [-d] msdosdrive

       MS-DOS drive is optional, if none is specified, use A:. If more than one drive are specified, all but the last are ignored.

       Mclasserase accepts the following command line options:

       d      Stop after each erase cycle, for testing purposes

       p      Not yet implemented

       Mclasserase returns 0 on success or -1 on failure.

Viewing the texi doc
       This  manpage  has  been automatically generated from mtools's texinfo documentation. However, this process is only approximative, and some
       items, such as crossreferences, footnotes and indices are lost in this translation process.  Indeed, these items have no appropriate repre-
       sentation  in  the manpage format.  Moreover, not all information has been translated into the manpage version.	Thus I strongly advise you
       to use the original texinfo 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.
