RELEASE: Version 1.01, released 08/18/8, The Hobbit House

TYPE: DOS file utility

PURPOSE: to allow the user to find out in advance how much
allocated space a set of files will take if moved from
one type of disk to another.

FUNCTION: a utility to show, for any group of files within any
directory on any disk, the actual disk space used by
that group of files plus the allocation requirements
for that group of files both on the disk on which they
reside, and for all other type disks. Allocation sizes
shown are based, obviously, on the cluster sizes (1K,
2K, etc.) used by the various disks (360K, 1.2Meg,
20Meg, etc.).

INVOCATIONS:

(1) SIZE

The can be to any drive and any
directory and any set of files (which can be validly
described with the DOS wildcards "*" and "?"), but it
MUST end in a file spec, NOT a directory spec, otherwise
the program will report that there are no files for it
to size.

(2) SIZE

This case will assume all files in current
directory (i.e. is taken as "\\*.*")


NOTES:
------

(1) Turbo-C source code is included.

(2) This software is contributed to the public domain by:

Paul Hinds (aka The Hobbit, of The Hobbit House)

and may therefore be shared freely with no restrictions (this
includes the source code). I ask only that
(1) Distribution always include the entire contents of
the HH-SIZE.ARC, namely:
SIZE.EXE
SIZE.DOC
SIZE.C
(2) The Hobbit House message be left intact

MESSAGES FROM "SIZE":

(1) "Nobody Home!" --- indicates that no files of the kind
specified by were found. Also will occur if
specifies a directory instead of a file.

SAMPLE OUTPUT:



Hobbit House Software --- file size utility, ver 1.01 (July, '88)

30 files (1.2M flop) (3x0K flop) (20M+ hard) (10M hard)
actual 512 clusters 1k clusters 2k clusters 4k clusters

280759 289280 295936 317440 352256


This shows 30 files found with an actual disk usage of 280759
bytes, and then it shows the allocations requirements for the
same set of files if they were to be transferred to any of the
disks specified.
