mcopy Linux Command


mcopy [options] sourcefile target
Copy files between Unix and MS-DOS format partitions. See cp and mtools for more information. Multiple source files can be specified and written to a target directory.


The mcopy option flags differ from the flags passed to the Unix cp command. The flags are:

Convert Unix line breaks to MS-DOS line breaks and vice versa when copying text files.

Operate in batch mode; use for large copies of data.

Copy recursively.

Preserve attributes of copied files.

When copying multiple files, if one copy fails, stop. Useful if you think you may run out of disk space.

Assume that all incoming files are ASCII and convert carriage return/line feed to plain line feed.

Convert line breaks as with -a, but also convert PC-8 characters to ISO-8859-1 characters. Replace untranslatable characters with # or . for Unix and DOS respectively.

Do not ask for confirmation when overwriting Unix files.

Turn off confirmation for overwriting DOS files.

Preserve file modification time.

Display the names of files as they are copied.

-D clash-option
Specify the action to take if the specified directory name already exists. See mmd for the possible clash options.
