       mcat - dump raw disk image

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 mcat command is used to copy an entire disk image from or to  the  floppy  device.  It
       uses the following syntax:

       mcat [-w] drive:

       Mcat  performs the same task as the unix cat command. It is included into the mtools pack-
       age, since cat cannot access remote floppy devices offered by the  mtools  floppy  daemon.
       Now it is possible to create boot floppies remotely.

       The default operation is reading. The output is written to stdout.

       If  the	-w  option  is specified, mcat reads a disk-image from stdin and writes it to the
       given device.  Use this carefully! Because of the lowlevel nature of this command, it will
       happily destroy any data written before on the disk without warning!

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://mtools.linux.lu'	 and   also   at:

       *      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.
