NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       mdir  - mtools utility to display contents of a DOS directory

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       mdir [-w] msdosdirectory

       mdir [-w] msdosfile [msdosfile...]

OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

       Specifies wide output.  Enables file names to be displayed
       across  the  page without displaying the file size or creation

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The mdir command lists the contents of  a  DOS  directory.
       Unlike  the  DOS  convention,  multiple arguments are supported.
 If the component of the path is not  a  directory,
       an  error  occurs.  The mdir command assumes a new disk if
       the current path held in the file is invalid.

       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:\.

RESTRICTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

       The mdir command does not support the /P (pause) option.

EXIT STATUS    [Toc]    [Back]

       The following exit values are returned: Success.  Failure.


       The following environment variables affect  the  execution
       of  mdir:  If  set, this variable names the file that contains
 the name of the current mtools working directory  as
       established  by  the mcd command.  If this variable is not
       set, the file $HOME/.mcwd is used.

FILES    [Toc]    [Back]

       Contains the name of the current mtools working  directory
       as  established by the mcd command.  If this file does not
       exist, the default mtools working directory is A:\.   Executable
