mtype - Unix, Linux Command
Namemtype - display contents of an MSDOS file
Note of warningThis manpage has been automatically generated from mtoolss texinfo documentation, and may not be entirely accurate or complete. See the end of this man page for details.
The mtype command is used to display contents of an MS-DOS file. Its syntax is:
mtype [-ts] msdosfile [ msdosfiles... ]
Mtype displays the specified MS-DOS file on the screen.
In addition to the standard options, Mtype allows the following command line options:
|Text file viewing. Mtype translates incoming carriage return/line feeds to line feeds.|
|Mtype strips the high bit from the data.|
Mtype returns 0 on success, 1 on utter failure, or 2 on partial failure.
Unlike the MS-DOS version of TYPE, mtype allows multiple arguments.

Viewing the texi docThis manpage has been automatically generated from mtoolss texinfo documentation. However, this process is only approximative, and some items, such as crossreferences, footnotes and indices are lost in this translation process. Indeed, these items have no appropriate representation in the manpage format. Moreover, not all information has been translated into the manpage version. Thus I strongly advise you to use the original texinfo doc. See the end of this manpage for instructions how to view the texinfo doc.
