       mcd - change MSDOS directory

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 mcd command is used to change the mtools working directory on the MS-DOS disk. It uses
       the following syntax:

	  mcd [msdosdirectory]

       Without	arguments,  mcd reports the current device and working directory.  Otherwise, mcd
       changes the current device and current working directory relative to an MS-DOS filesystem.

       The environmental variable MCWD may be used to locate the file where the device	and  cur-
       rent  working directory information is stored.  The default is `$HOME/.mcwd'.  Information
       in this file is ignored if the file is more than 6 hours old.

       Mcd returns 0 on success or 1 on failure.

       Unlike MS-DOS versions of CD, mcd can be used to change to another device. It may be  wise
       to remove old `.mcwd' files at logout.

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.
