Name
       mren - rename an existing MSDOS file

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 mren command is used to rename or move an existing MS-DOS file  or  subdirectory.  Its
       syntax is:

       mren [-voOsSrRA] sourcefile targetfile

       Mren renames an existing file on an MS-DOS file system.

       In verbose mode, Mren displays the new filename if the name supplied is invalid.

       If the first syntax is used (only one source file), and if the target name doesn't contain
       any slashes or colons, the file (or  subdirectory)  is  renamed	in  the  same  directory,
       instead	of  being  moved  to  the  current mcd directory as would be the case with mmove.
       Unlike the MS-DOS version of REN, mren can be used to rename directories.

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.
