mtoolstest man page
mtoolstest — tests and displays the configuration
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.
mtoolstest command is used to tests the mtools configuration files. To invoke it, just type
mtoolstest without any arguments.
Mtoolstest reads the mtools configuration files, and prints the cumulative configuration to
stdout. The output can be used as a configuration file itself (although you might want to remove redundant clauses). You may use this program to convert old-style configuration files into new style configuration files.
Mtools' texinfo doc
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
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.
