mlabel(1)										mlabel(1)

Name
       mlabel - make an MSDOS volume label

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 mlabel command adds a volume label to a disk. Its syntax is:
       mlabel [-vcsn] [-N serial] drive:[new_label]

       Mlabel displays the current volume label, if present. If new_label is not  given,  and  if
       neither	the  c nor the s options are set, it prompts the user for a new volume label.  To
       delete an existing volume label, press return at the prompt.

       The label is limited to 11 single-byte characters, e.g. Name1234567.

       Reasonable care is taken to create a valid MS-DOS volume label.	If an  invalid	label  is
       specified,  mlabel  changes  the  label (and displays the new label if the verbose mode is
       set). Mlabel returns 0 on success or 1 on failure.

       Mlabel supports the following options:

       c      Clears an existing label, without prompting the user

       s      Shows the existing label, without prompting the user.

       n      Assigns a new (random) serial number to the disk

       N serial
	      Sets the supplied serial number. The serial number should be supplied as an 8 digit
	      hexadecimal number, without spaces

       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.
