Luckily for you, dmode is a command where the internal help has been left active.
gives you a cursory explanation of the command but
gives you a detailed explanation of the syntax for the command.
Usage: DMode [/<device> || -<pathlist> || -?] [option] [option] [...]
Purpose: To report or alter current option settings of RBF device
descriptors in memory or on disk in single module files.
Options: nam, mgr, ddr, hpn, hpa, drv, stp, typ, dns, cyl, sid, vfy,
sct, t0s, ilv, sas, wpc, ofs, rwc.
Examples: dmode /dd
Prints the current option settings of the /DD descriptor
dmode -modules/h0.dd nam=H1 drv=1 cyl=03FF rwc=ffff
Changes the module name in the MODULES/H0.dd file to H1,
sets the physical drive number to 1, cylinders to $03FF,
and the Reduced Write Current cylinder to $FFFF.
Prints more complete information on all of the options.
