       dxmtools - DOS Tools Graphical User Interface for manipulating files on
       an MSDOS diskette


       The DOS Tools application, dxmtools, uses a graphical user interface to
       copy  files to and from an MSDOS formatted diskette to manipulate files
       on that diskette, in the same manner as the mtools(1)  commands,	 which
       are accessed from the command line interface.

       The  DOS	 Tools	application accepts the standard X11 resource options.
       For more information, see the X(1X) reference page

       Use the DOS Tools application to: Copy a diskette file  to  Tru64  UNIX
       Copy  Tru64  UNIX  files	 to  the  diskette  Create  a directory on the
       diskette Delete diskette files Format a diskette	 Change	 the  diskette
       volume	label  Change  the  archive,  read-only,  hidden,  and	system
       attribute bits on a diskette file Display the contents  of  a  diskette
       file  Find  a  diskette	file  by its name, size, or attribute settings
       Rename a diskette file.

       MSDOS filenames are optionally composed of a drive letter followed by a
       colon,  optional subdirectories, and a filename. Subdirectory names can
       use either the '/' or '\' separator. The current working directory rel‐
       ative to the diskette is A:/.

       The  regular expression pattern matching routines follow the UNIX-style
       rules. For example, an asterisk (*), in place of asterisks separated by
       a  dot  (.)  that is *.*, matches all MSDOS files. The archive, hidden,
       read-only, and system attribute bits are ignored during pattern	match‐
