NAME

mdir - mtools utility to display contents of a DOS directory  

SYNOPSIS

mdir [-w] msdosdirectory

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


 

OPTIONS

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

DESCRIPTION

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 .mcwd 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

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

EXIT STATUS

The following exit values are returned: Success. Failure.
 

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

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

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 file
