mcat – dump raw disk image

Note of warning
This manpage has been automatically generated from mtools’s texinfo
documentation, and may not be entirely accurate or complete. See the
end of this man page for details.

The mcat command is used to copy an entire disk image from or to the
floppy device. It uses the following syntax:

mcat [-w] drive:

Mcat performs the same task as the Unix cat command. It is included
into the mtools package, since cat cannot access remote floppy devices
offered by the mtools floppy daemon. Now it is possible to create boot
floppies remotely.

The default operation is reading. The output is written to stdout.

If the -w option is specified, mcat reads a disk-image from stdin and
writes it to the given device. Use this carefully! Because of the low-
level nature of this command, it will happily destroy any data written
before on the disk without warning!

Viewing the texi doc
This manpage has been automatically generated from mtools’s texinfo
documentation. However, this process is only approximative, and some
items, such as crossreferences, footnotes and indices are lost in this
translation process. Indeed, these items have no appropriate represen‐
tation in the manpage format. Moreover, not all information has been
translated into the manpage version. Thus I strongly advise you to use
the original texinfo doc. See the end of this manpage for instructions
how to view the texinfo doc.

* To generate a printable copy from the texinfo doc, run the fol‐
lowing commands:

./configure; make dvi; dvips mtools.dvi

* To generate a html copy, run:

./configure; make html

A premade html can be found at `‐

* To generate an info copy (browsable using emacs’ info mode),

./configure; make info

The texinfo doc looks most pretty when printed or as html. Indeed, in
the info version certain examples are difficult to read due to the
quoting conventions used in info.
