mdel - mtools utility to delete a DOS file
mdel [-v] msdosfile [msdosfiles...]
-v 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:\.
