mdel - mtools utility to delete a DOS file
mdel [-v] msdosfile [msdosfiles...]
Specifies verbose mode. File names are echoed as they are
The mdel command deletes a file or files on an DOS file
system. Unlike the DOS convention, multiple arguments can
be specified. If a read only file is encountered, the
mdel command queries whether or not to delete the file.
Unlike the DOS convention, DOS subdirectory names that
contain the '/' or '\' separator are supported. If you
use the '\' separator or wildcards, you must enclose file
names in quotes to protect them from the shell.
The mcd command can be used to establish the device and
the current working directory (relative to DOS), otherwise
the default is A:\.
The following exit values are returned: Success. Failure.
