       floppyd_installtest - tests whether floppyd is installed and running

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.


       Floppyd_installtest  is  used  to  check  for the presence of a running
       floppyd daemon. This is usefull, if you have a small frontend 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:

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),

                     ./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.
