documentation, and may not be entirely accurate or complete. See the
end of this man page for details.

Description
Mdu is used to list the space occupied by a directory, its subdirecto‐
ries and its files. It is similar to the du command on Unix. The unit
used are clusters. Use the minfo command to find out the cluster size.

a All files. List also the space occupied for individual files.

s Only list the total space, don’t give details for each subdirec‐
tory.

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 `http://www.gnu.org/software/mtools/man‐
ual/mtools.html’

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

./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.
