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.

       Mdu  is used to list the space occupied by a directory, its subdirecto-
       ries and its files. It is similar to the du command on Unix.  The  unit
       used are clusters.  Use the minfo command to find out the cluster size.

       mdu [-a] [ msdosfiles ... ]

       a      All files.  List also the space occupied for individual files.

       s      Only list the total space, don't give details for each subdirec-

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.
