RedHat 9 (Linux i386) - man page for mdir (redhat section 1)

mdir(1) 			     General Commands Manual				  mdir(1)

Name
       mdir - display an 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.

Description
       The mdir command is used to display an MS-DOS directory. Its syntax is:

       mdir [-/] [-f] [-w] [-a] [-b] msdosfile [ msdosfiles...]

       Mdir displays the contents of MS-DOS directories, or the entries for some MS-DOS files.

       Mdir supports the following command line options:

       /      Recursive output, just like Dos' -s option

       w      Wide output.  With this option, mdir prints the filenames across the  page  without
	      displaying the file size or creation date.

       a      Also list hidden files.

       f      Fast.   Do not try to find out free space.  On larger disks, finding out the amount
	      of free space takes up some non trivial amount of time, as the whole  FAT  must  be
	      read  in	and scanned.  The -f flag bypasses this step.  This flag is not needed on
	      FAT32 filesystems, which store the size explicitely.

       b      Concise listing. Lists each directory name or filename, one per line (including the
	      filename	extension).  This  switch displays no heading information and no summary.
	      Only a newline separated list of pathnames is displayed.

       An error occurs if a component of the path is not a directory.

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:
	      `http://www.tux.org/pub/knaff/mtools'

       *      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.
