Floppyd_installtest is used to check for the presence of a running floppyd daemon. This is useful, if you have a small front-end script to mtools, which decides whether to use floppyd or not.
floppyd_installtest [-f] Connect-String
If the -f option is specified, floppyd_installtest does a full X-Cookie authentication and complains if this does not work.
The connect-String has the format described in the floppyd-section: hostname:displaynumber[/baseport]

Viewing the texi docThis 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
./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/software/mtools/manual/mtools.htmlIntegral
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.
