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.

       The mdel command is used to delete an MS-DOS file. Its syntax is:

       mdel [-v] msdosfile [ msdosfiles ...  ]

       Mdel deletes files on an MS-DOS filesystem.

       Mdel asks for verification prior to removing a read-only file.

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.

       *      To  generate a printable copy from the texinfo doc, run the fol-
	      lowing commands:

		     ./configure; make dvi; dvips mtools.dvi

       *      To generate a html copy,	run:

		     ./configure; make html

	      A	 premade  html	can  be	 found	at   `http://www.gnu.org/soft-

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

		     ./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.
