Name

       mclasserase - erase memory cards

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 mclasserase command is used to wipe memory cards by overwriting it three times:  first
       with 0xff, then with 0x00, then with 0xff again. The command uses the following syntax:

          mclasserase [-d] msdosdrive

       MS-DOS  drive  is  optional,  if  none  is  specified,  use A:. If more than one drive are
       specified, all but the last are ignored.

       Mclasserase accepts the following command line options:

       d      Stop after each erase cycle, for testing purposes

       p      Not yet implemented

       Mclasserase returns 0 on success or -1 on failure.

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.
