NAME

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

SYNOPSIS

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

OPTIONS

  -t  Specifies	text file viewing.  Line terminators are converted to the
      appropriate format.

  -s  Strips the high bit from the data.

DESCRIPTION

  The mtype command displays the specified file	on the screen. Unlike conven-
  tions, 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:\.

EXIT STATUS

  The following	exit values are	returned:

  0   Success.

  1   Failure.

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

  The following	environment variables affect the execution of mtype:

  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:\.
