mdel(1)mdel(1)NAMEmdel - mtools utility to delete a DOS file
SYNOPSISmdel [-v] msdosfile [msdosfiles...]
Specifies verbose mode. File names are echoed as they are processed.
The mdel command deletes a file or files on an DOS file system. Unlike
the DOS convention, multiple arguments can be specified. If a read
only file is encountered, the mdel command queries whether or not to
delete the file. Unlike the DOS convention, DOS subdirectory names
that contain the '/' or '\' separator are supported. If you use the
'\' separator or wildcards, you must enclose file names in quotes to
protect them from the shell.
The mcd command can be used to establish the device and the current
working directory (relative to DOS), otherwise the default is A:\.
The following exit values are returned: Success. Failure.
The following environment variables affect the execution of mdel: If
set, this variable names the file that contains the name of the current
mtools working directory as established by the mcd command. If this
variable is not set, the file $HOME/.mcwd is used.
Contains the name of the current mtools working directory as estab‐
lished by the mcd command. If this file does not exist, the default
mtools working directory is A:\. Executable file
