mdir - mtools utility to display contents of a DOS directory
mdir [-w] msdosdirectory
mdir [-w] msdosfile [msdosfile...]
Specifies wide output. Enables file names to be displayed
across the page without displaying the file size or creation
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:\.
The mdir command does not support the /P (pause) option.
The following exit values are returned: Success. Failure.
