Name

       mtype - display contents of an 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  mtype  command  is used to display contents of an MS-DOS file. Its
       syntax is:

       mtype [-ts] msdosfile [ msdosfiles... ]


       Mtype displays the specified MS-DOS file on the screen.

       In addition to the standard options, Mtype allows the following command
       line options:

       t      Text   file   viewing.    Mtype   translates  incoming  carriage
              return/line feeds to line feeds.

       s      Mtype strips the high bit from the data.

       The mcd command may be used to establish the  device  and  the  current
       working directory (relative to MS-DOS), otherwise the default is A:/.

       Mtype  returns  0 on success, 1 on utter failure, or 2 on partial fail-
       ure.

       Unlike the MS-DOS version of TYPE, mtype allows multiple arguments.

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.
