mlabel




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 mlabel command adds a volume label to a disk. Its syn­
       tax is:
       mlabel [-vcsn] [-N serial] drive:[new_label]

       Mlabel  displays  the current volume label, if present. If
       new_label is not given, and if neither the  c  nor  the  s
       options  are  set,  it  prompts  the user for a new volume
       label.  To delete an existing volume label,  press  return
       at the prompt.

       Reasonable  care  is taken to create a valid MS-DOS volume
       label.  If an invalid label is specified,  mlabel  changes
       the  label (and displays the new label if the verbose mode
       is set). Mlabel returns 0 on success or 1 on failure.

       Mlabel supports the following options:

       c      Clears an existing  label,  without  prompting  the
              user

       s      Shows  the  existing  label,  without prompting the
              user.

       n      Assigns a new (random) serial number to the disk

       N serial
              Sets the supplied serial number. The serial  number
              should  be  supplied as an 8 digit hexadecimal num­
              ber, without spaces

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  crossrefer­
       ences,  footnotes and indices are lost in this translation
       process.  Indeed, these items have no  appropriate  repre­
       sentation in the manpage format.  Moreover, not all infor­
                     ./configure; make html

              A    premade    html    can    be     found     at:
              `http://mtools.linux.lu'      and      also     at:
              `http://www.tux.org/pub/knaff/mtools'

       *      To generate an info copy  (browsable  using  emacs'
              info mode), run:

                     ./configure; make info

       The texinfo doc looks most pretty when printed or as html.
       Indeed, in the info version certain examples are difficult
       to read due to the quoting conventions used in info.
