mmove - move or rename an MSDOS file or subdirectory
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 mmove command is used to moves or renames an existing MS-DOS file or subdirectory.
mmove [-v] [-D clash_option] sourcefile targetfile mmove [-v] [-D clash_option] source-
file [ sourcefiles... ] targetdirectory
Mmove moves or renames an existing MS-DOS file or subdirectory. Unlike the MS-DOS version
of MOVE, mmove is able to move subdirectories. Files or directories can only be moved
within one filesystem. Data cannot be moved from Dos to Unix or vice-versa. If you omit
the drive letter from the target file or directory, the same letter as for the source is
assumed. If you omit the drive letter from all parameters, drive a: is assumed by
Mtools' texinfo doc
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.
