mmove General Commands Manual mmove

Name
mmove – move or rename an MSDOS file or subdirectory

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.

Description
The mmove command is used to moves or renames an existing MS-DOS file
or subdirectory.
mmove [-v] [-D clash_option] sourcefile targetfile
mmove [-v] [-D clash_option] sourcefile [ sourcefiles… ] targetdirectory

Mmove moves or renames an existing MS-DOS file or subdirectory. Unlike
the MS-DOS version of MOVE, mmove is able to move subdirectories.
Files or directories can only be moved within one file system. Data
cannot be moved from MS-DOS to Unix or vice-versa. If you omit the
drive letter from the target file or directory, the same letter as for
the source is assumed. If you omit the drive letter from all parame‐
ters, drive a: is assumed by default.

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.
