mtoolstest - tests and displays the configuration
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 mtoolstest command is used to tests the mtools configuration files. To invoke it, just
type mtoolstest without any arguments. Mtoolstest reads the mtools configuration files,
and prints the cumulative configuration to stdout. The output can be used as a configura-
tion file itself (although you might want to remove redundant clauses). You may use this
program to convert old-style configuration files into new style configuration files.
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.
