NAME

  mmd -	mtools utility to make a DOS directory

SYNOPSIS

  mmd [-v] msdosdirectory [msdosdirectories...]

OPTIONS

  -v  Displays the new directory name if the name supplied is invalid.

DESCRIPTION

  The mmd command makes	a new directory	on a DOS file system. Unlike DOS con-
  ventions, this command accepts multiple arguments. Reasonable	care is	taken
  to create a valid DOS	directory name.	 If an invalid name is specified, the
  mmd command changes the directory name and displays the new name if the -v
  option is specified. If the directory	specified exists, an error occurs.

  DOS subdirectory names are supported with either the '/' or '\' separator.
  The use of the '\' separator or wildcards will require the directory name
  to be	enclosed in quotes to protect it 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:\.

EXIT STATUS

  The following	exit values are	returned:

  0   Success.

  1   Failure.

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

  The following	environment variables affect the execution of mmd:

  MCWD
      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.

FILES

  $HOME/.mcwd
      Contains the name	of the current mtools working directory	as esta-
      blished by the mcd command.  If this file	does not exist,	the default
      mtools working directory is A:\.

  /usr/bin/mtools/mmd
