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

mren(1) 				       General Commands Manual					      mren(1)

Name
       mren - rename an existing MSDOS file

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 mren command is used to rename or move an existing MS-DOS file or subdirectory. Its syntax is:

       mren [-voOsSrRA] sourcefile targetfile

       Mren renames an existing file on an MS-DOS filesystem.

       In verbose mode, Mren displays the new filename if the name supplied is invalid.

       If the first syntax is used (only one sourcefile), and if the target  name  doesn't  contain  any  slashes  or
       colons, the file (or subdirectory) is renamed in the same directory, instead of being moved to the current mcd
       directory as would be the case with mmove. Unlike the MS-DOS version of REN, mren can be used to rename direc-
       tories.

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  transla-
       tion  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
       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.
