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	direc-
       tory.   Otherwise,  mcd	changes	the current device and current working
       directory relative to an	MS-DOS filesystem.

       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 represen-
       tation 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 fol-
	      lowing 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/soft-
	      ware/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.
