UNIX/LINUX Command – mtype

Last updated May 11, 2021

NAME

mtype—Display contents of an MS-DOS file

SYNOPSIS

mtype [ -ts ] msdosfile [ msdosfiles… ]

DESCRIPTION

mtype displays the specified MS-DOS file on the screen.
mtype will allow the following command-line options:

t           Text file viewing. mtype will translate incoming carriage return/line feeds to line feeds.
s           Strip high bit. mtype will strip the high bit from the data.

MS-DOS subdirectory names are supported with either the / or \ separator. The use of the \ separator or wildcards will require the names to be enclosed in quotes to protect them from the shell.

The mcd command may be used to establish the device and the current working directory (relative to MS-DOS); otherwise, the default is A:/.

mtype returns 0 on success, 1 on utter failure, or 2 on partial failure.
