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 failure.

       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
       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.
