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 directory.  Otherwise, mcd
       changes the current device and current  working  directory  relative  to  an  MS-DOS  file
       system.

       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  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://www.gnu.org/software/mtools/manual/mtools.html'

       *      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.
