mread(1)							      mread(1)

       mread - mtools utility to perform a low level read (copy) of a DOS file
       to UNIX

       mread [-tnm] msdosfile unixfile

       mread [-tnm] msdosfile [msdosfiles...] unixdirectory

       Preserves the file modification time.  Specifies that a warning is  not
       issued  when an existing file is specified as the target file.  If this
       option is not specified, the mread command verifies whether or  not  to
       overwrite an existing file.  Specifies a text file transfer.  Line ter‐
       minators are converted to the appropriate format.

       The mread command copies the specified DOS file to the named UNIX file,
       or copies multiple DOS files to the named UNIX directory.

       DOS  subdirectory  names that contain the '/' or '\' separator are sup‐
       ported.	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:\.

       Unlike DOS convention, the destination directory may not be omitted.

       The following exit values are returned: Success.	 Failure.

       The following environment variables affect the execution of  mread:  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

       Commands:  dos2unix(1),	 mcd(1),  mcopy(1),  mdiskcopy(1),  mtools(1),
