NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       mwrite  -  mtools  utility  to  perform  a low level write
       (copy) of a UNIX file to DOS

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       mwrite [-mntv] unixfile msdosfile

       mwrite [-mntv] unixfile [unixfiles...] [msdosdirectory]

OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

       Preserves the file modification time.   Specifies  that  a
       warning  is  not issued when an existing file is specified
       as the target file.  If this option is not specified,  the
       mwrite  command  verifies  whether  or not to overwrite an
       existing file.  Specifies a text file transfer.  Line terminators
  are converted to the appropriate format.  Specifies
 verbose mode.  Displays the new file name if the UNIX
       file name requires conversion.

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The  mwrite  command copies the specified UNIX file to the
       named DOS file, or copies multiple UNIX files to the named
       DOS  directory.  The destination directory cannot be omitted.
 Reasonable care is taken to create a valid  DOS  file
       name.  If an invalid name is specified, the mwrite command
       changes the name, then displays the new  name  if  the  -v
       option is specified.

       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:\.

       Not all UNIX file names are supported in  the  DOS  world.
       The  mwrite  command  may have to change UNIX names to fit
       the DOS file name conventions. The following  table  shows
       some examples of file name conversions:

       UNIX name     DOS name   Reason for the change
       thisisatest   THISISAT   file name too long
       file.stuff    FILE.STU   extension too long
       prn.txt       XRN.TXT    PRN is a device name
       .abc          X.ABC      null file name
       hot+cold      HOTXCOLD   illegal character

EXIT STATUS    [Toc]    [Back]

       The following exit values are returned: Success.  Failure.


       The following environment variables affect  the  execution
       of  mwrite: 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
