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.
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 speci-
fied, 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.
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.
