mtype(1)							      mtype(1)

       mtype - mtools utility to display the contents of a DOS file

       mtype [-ts] msdosfile [msdosfiles...]

       Specifies  text	file  viewing.	 Line terminators are converted to the
       appropriate format.  Strips the high bit from the data.

       The mtype command displays the specified file  on  the  screen.	Unlike
       conventions, this command supports multiple arguments.

       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  mtype:  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:  dos2unix(1), mcd(1), mread(1), mtools(1), unix2dos(1)
