CDD Usage:
==========
CDD.COM is an enhanced version of the DOS 'CD' command. CDD not only provides
the capability to change subdirectories but to also change drives, NetWare File
Servers and Volumes. The only qualification for changing to a different drive,
subdirectory or NetWare File Server/Volume is that:

1). The drive & directory must exist as specified (under NetWare, the
specified drive must be a valid mapped drive although it does
not have to be mapped to the specified File Server or Volume).
2). The user must have valid access rights.
3). If a NetWare File Server or Volume is specified, the user must
already have ATTACHed to the associated File Server. However,
the specified File Server and/or Volume does not need to have
already been mapped.

Examples:

Command line Resulting destination Server/Vol (NetWare drives)
------------ --------------------- ---------------------------
CDD \PROG \PROG (current drive) (current, if network drive)
CDD C:\PROG C:\PROG (current, if network drive)
CDD J:SYS:\PROG J:\PROG volume SYS:, current server
CDD X:FS1\SYS1:\PROG X:\PROG volume SYS1: on FS1 server

(Note: For NetWare network drive specifications, forward or backward
slash separators may be used and a leading separator is not
required between volume name and first subdirectory entry.)


CDSET Usage:
============
CDSET.EXE was designed as a compliment to CDD.COM. CDSET provides the
capability to store the current drive and directory (plus File Server name
and Volume, if on a NetWare network drive) in the User's Environment Table
(UET) as the default variable HOME or some other specified UET variable name.

Examples: Current directory Command line Resulting UET entry
----------------- ------------ -------------------
C:\ (local) CDSET HOME=C:\
D:\DIR (local) CDSET TEST TEST=D:\DIR
M:\HOME (on FS1/SYS:) CDSET USERHOME USERHOME=M:FS1/SYS:HOME


CDD.COM and CDSET.EXE could be used as follows in either batch files or menus:

D:\HOME\USER>CDSET (SYS:HOME\USER is the starting point)
D:\HOME\USER>CDD SYS1:LOTUS\123 (change the volume & subdirectory)
D:\LOTUS\123>123 (the desired program can then be run)
D:\LOTUS\123>CDD %HOME% (DOS inserts the UET HOME= value)
D:\HOME\USER> (the user returns to SYS:HOME/USER)

HELP:
====
The following help screens are accessed by entering a question mark (?) on
the command line (Note: CDD will automatically bring up the help screen if
no parameters are specified on the command line.)

CDD.COM:
========
CDD v1.1 - Change Drive & Directory (c)1990-92 Avanti Technology, Inc.
800/AVANTI-4 (282-6844) * (+1)512/335-1168 * CompuServe:76517,3117

Identical to the DOS CD/CHDIR command except, if a drive specification is given
(local or network), it will attempt to change the drive and the subdirectory.
Sufficient rights and a valid destination required for success (access rights,
existing network drive, existing Server attachment, valid volume, etc.).

Examples:

Command line Resulting destination Server/Vol (NetWare drives)
------------ --------------------- ---------------------------
CDD \PROG \PROG (current drive) (current, if network drive)
CDD C:\PROG C:\PROG (current, if network drive)
CDD J:SYS:\PROG J:\PROG volume SYS:, current server
CDD X:FS1\SYS1:\PROG X:\PROG volume SYS1: on FS1 server

Avanti also offers network management utilities for Novell NetWare based nets:
NetAlarm - Network monitor (detect/log/alert F/S anomalies)
NetTrack - Server Baseline Sampling/Trends Analysis (with logging)
NetScope - Real-time, on-line IPX/NCP protocol monitoring/analysis


CDSET.EXE:
==========
CDSET v1.1 - Current Directory SET utility (c)1990-92 Avanti Technology, Inc.
800/AVANTI-4 (282-6844) * (+1)512/335-1168 * CompuServe:76517,3117

CDSET will retrieve the current drive and subdirectory specifics from DOS
then place this information in the Users Environment Table (UET). The user may
specify a UET variable name to use, otherwise the default "HOME" will be used.
This program is NetWare aware and compliments CDD for batch/menu control.

Examples: Current directory Command line Resulting UET entry
----------------- ------------ -------------------
C:\ (local) CDSET HOME=C:\
D:\DIR (local) CDSET TEST TEST=D:\DIR
M:\HOME (on FS1/SYS:) CDSET USERHOME USERHOME=M:FS1/SYS:HOME

Avanti also offers network management utilities for Novell NetWare based nets:
NetAlarm - Network monitor (detect/log/alert F/S anomalies)
NetTrack - Server Baseline Sampling/Trends Analysis (with logging)
NetScope - Real-time, on-line IPX/NCP protocol monitoring/analysis

UET sizes (bytes): Config max = ???? / Inherited max = ???? / In use = ????
