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 CWmlabel command adds a volume label to a disk. Its syntax is:
CWmlabel [CW-vcsn] [CW-N serial] drive:[new_label]
CWMlabel displays the current volume label, if present. If new_label is not given, and if neither the CWc nor the CWs 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, CWmlabel changes the label (and displays the new label if the verbose mode is set). CWMlabel returns 0 on success or 1 on failure.
Mlabel supports the following options:
CWc 
Clears an existing label, without prompting the user
CWs 
Shows the existing label, without prompting the user.
CWn  
Assigns a new (random) serial number to the disk
CWN serialCW 
Sets the supplied serial number. The serial number should be supplied as an 8 digit hexadecimal number, 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 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.

To generate a printable copy from the texinfo doc, run the following commands:
    ./configure; make dvi; dvips mtools.dvi

To generate a html copy, run:
    ./configure; make html
A premade html can be found at: CWhttp://mtools.linux.lu and also at: CWhttp://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.
