NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       dxmtools  - DOS Tools Graphical User Interface for manipulating
 files on an MSDOS diskette

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]


OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

       The DOS Tools application, dxmtools, uses a graphical user
       interface  to  copy  files  to and from an MSDOS formatted
       diskette to manipulate files on that diskette, in the same
       manner  as the mtools(1) commands, which are accessed from
       the command line interface.

       The  DOS  Tools  application  accepts  the  standard   X11
       resource  options.   For  more  information, see the X(1X)
       reference page

       Use the DOS Tools application to: Copy a diskette file  to
       Tru64  UNIX Copy Tru64 UNIX files to the diskette Create a
       directory on the diskette Delete diskette files  Format  a
       diskette  Change  the  diskette  volume  label  Change the
       archive, read-only, hidden, and system attribute bits on a
       diskette file Display the contents of a diskette file Find
       a diskette file by its name, size, or  attribute  settings
       Rename a diskette file.

       MSDOS  filenames are optionally composed of a drive letter
       followed by a colon, optional subdirectories, and a  filename.
  Subdirectory  names  can  use either the '/' or '\'
       separator. The current working directory relative  to  the
       diskette is A:/.

       The  regular  expression  pattern matching routines follow
       the UNIX-style rules. For example,  an  asterisk  (*),  in
       place  of  asterisks  separated  by a dot (.) that is *.*,
       matches all MSDOS files. The archive,  hidden,  read-only,
       and  system  attribute  bits  are  ignored  during pattern

       The DOS Tools application  requires  a  diskette  properly
       installed on the system.

       The   DOS  Tools  application  addresses  a  device  named
       /dev/disk/floppy; a symbolic  link  between  the  diskette
       device and /dev/disk/floppy is required.

       Online help is available for the dxmtools application.  To
       get help, click on any Help button or use the  Help  pulldown

       The DOS Tools application can be invoked from:

       The CDE Application Manager.
       Application Group: Desktop_Apps
       Desktop_Apps Subgroup: dxmtools
