Name
       mtype - display contents of an 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 mtype command is used to display contents of an MS-DOS file. Its syntax is:

       mtype [-ts] msdosfile [ msdosfiles... ]

       Mtype displays the specified MS-DOS file on the screen.

       In addition to the standard options, Mtype allows the following command line options:

       t      Text file viewing.  Mtype translates incoming carriage return/line  feeds  to  line
	      feeds.

       s      Mtype strips the high bit from the data.

       The  mcd  command  may  be  used to establish the device and the current working directory
       (relative to MS-DOS), otherwise the default is A:/.

       Mtype returns 0 on success, 1 on utter failure, or 2 on partial failure.

       Unlike the MS-DOS version of TYPE, mtype allows multiple arguments.

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.
