Name

       mcd - change 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  mcd  command is used to change the mtools working directory on the
       MS-DOS disk. It uses the following syntax:


          mcd [msdosdirectory]



       Without arguments, mcd reports the current device  and  working  direc-
       tory.   Otherwise,  mcd  changes the current device and current working
       directory relative to an MS-DOS filesystem.

       The environmental variable MCWD may be used to locate  the  file  where
       the  device  and  current working directory information is stored.  The
       default is ‘$HOME/.mcwd’.  Information in this file is ignored  if  the
       file is more than 6 hours old.

       Mcd returns 0 on success or 1 on failure.

       Unlike  MS-DOS  versions  of  CD,  mcd can be used to change to another
       device. It may be wise to remove old ‘.mcwd’ files at logout.

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 represen-
       tation 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 fol-
              lowing 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.
