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 mshortname command is used to display the short name of a file.  Syntax:

       mshortname files

       The shortname is displayed as it is stored in raw format on disk,  without  any  character
       set conversion.

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.
