mtoolstest Man page

mtoolstest General Commands Manual mtoolstest

Name
mtoolstest – tests and displays the configuration

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 mtoolstest command is used to tests the mtools configuration files.
To invoke it, just type mtoolstest without any arguments. Mtoolstest
reads the mtools configuration files, and prints the cumulative config‐
uration to stdout. The output can be used as a configuration file
itself (although you might want to remove redundant clauses). You may
use this program to convert old-style configuration files into new
style configuration files.

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.
