Tom Kihlken 1988 No. 9 (Utilities)

Purpose:Keeps a log of the number of times each file is
accessed over a period of time to show which files would benefit from
being stored on a RAMdisk.

Format:RECORDER [n] [/R]

Remarks:RECORDER is a memory-resident utility that should
normally be loaded by being included as a line in an AUTOEXEC.BAT
file. By default it will keep track of disk I/O activity (reads,
writes, EXECs) for 200 filenames. The optional n parameter can be
entered at the time the utility is loaded to increase the number of

By default, RECORDER sorts by the numbers in the totals

other columns. The read column begins with character 20, the write
column with 27, and the EXEC column with 34.

Example:To sort the table by the number of entries in the EXEC
category, enter
