mcd - mtools utility to change or report the DOS working directory
Without arguments, the mcd command reports the current device and working
directory. Otherwise, the mcd command changes the current device and
current working directory relative to a DOS file system. Unlike the DOS
command CD, the mcd command can be used to change to another device.
The environment variable MCWD can be used to locate the file where the dev-
ice and current working directory information is stored. The default is
$HOME/.mcwd. The file is created if it does not exist and a msdosdirectory
DOS pathnames 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 supports the use of .. to move back one directory in the
tree, however, multiple relative moves such as ../.. are not supported and
do not affect your current position in the directory tree.
At logout time, it is advisable to remove old .mcwd files.
The following exit values are returned:
