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

mmove(1)						      General Commands Manual							  mmove(1)

Name
       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.

Description
       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] sourcefile [ 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 default.

Viewing the texi doc
       This manpage has been automatically generated from mtools's texinfo documentation. However, this process is only  approximative,  and  some
       items, such as crossreferences, footnotes and indices are lost in this translation process.  Indeed, these items have no appropriate repre-
       sentation in the manpage format.  Moreover, not all information has been translated into the manpage version.  Thus I strongly  advise  you
       to use the original texinfo 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.
