floppyd_installtest(1)	    General Commands Manual	floppyd_installtest(1)

Name
       floppyd_installtest - tests whether floppyd is installed	and running

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
       Floppyd_installtest  is	used  to  check	 for the presence of a running
       floppyd daemon. This is usefull,	if you have a small frontend script to
       mtools, which decides whether to	use floppyd or not.

       floppyd_installtest [-f]	 Connect-String

       If the -f option	is specified, floppyd_installtest does a full X-Cookie
       authentication and complains if this does not work.

       The connect-String has the format  described  in	 the  floppyd-section:
       hostname:displaynumber[/baseport]

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.
