       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.

       The  mcd  command is used to change the mtools working direc‐
       tory 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 informa‐
       tion 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

Viewing the texi doc
       This  manpage  has been automatically generated from mtools's
       texinfo documentation. However, this process is only approxi‐
       mative,  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  `‐

       *      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.
