mtype – display contents of an MSDOS file

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 mtype command is used to display contents of an MS-DOS file. Its
syntax is:

mtype [-ts] msdosfile [ msdosfiles… ]

Mtype displays the specified MS-DOS file on the screen.

In addition to the standard options, Mtype allows the following command
line options:

t Text file viewing. Mtype translates incoming carriage
return/line feeds to line feeds.

s Mtype strips the high bit from the data.

The mcd command may be used to establish the device and the current
working directory (relative to MS-DOS), otherwise the default is A:/.

Mtype returns 0 on success, 1 on utter failure, or 2 on partial fail‐

Unlike the MS-DOS version of TYPE, mtype allows multiple arguments.

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.
