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




  [X resources]


  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 relative 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 matching.

  The DOS Tools	application requires a diskette	properly installed on the

  The DOS Tools	application addresses a	device named /dev/disk/floppy; a sym-
  bolic	link between the diskette device and /dev/disk/floppy is required.

  Online help is available for the dxmtools application.  To get help, click
  on any Help button or	use the	Help pull-down menu.
