       mdel - mtools utility to delete a DOS file

       mdel [-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 estabā€
       lished by the mcd command.  If this file does not  exist,  the  default
       mtools working directory is A:\.	 Executable file

       Commands: mcd(1), mtools(1)
