mren




Note of warning
       This  manpage  has  been  automatically generated from mtools's texinfo
       documentation, and may not be entirely accurate or complete.   See  the
       end of this man page for details.

Description
       The  mren  command is used to rename or move an existing MS-DOS file or
       subdirectory. Its syntax is:

       mren [-voOsSrRA] sourcefile targetfile


       Mren renames an existing file on an MS-DOS filesystem.

       In verbose mode, Mren displays the new filename if the name supplied is
       invalid.

       If  the  first  syntax is used (only one sourcefile), and if the target
       name doesn't contain any slashes or colons, the file (or  subdirectory)
       is renamed in the same directory, instead of being moved to the current
       mcd directory as would be the case with mmove. Unlike the  MS-DOS  ver-
       sion of REN, mren can be used to rename directories.

Viewing the texi doc
       This  manpage  has  been  automatically generated from mtools's 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 represen-
       tation  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.
