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  ver-
       sion of REN, mren can be used to rename directories.

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.
