DiskStat provides a continually updated display of certain statistics
for a specified disk drive. This information includes:

The drive letter and volume label
The installed file system for the disk
The size of the disk in bytes
The number of bytes currently available on the disk
The current disk space usage as a percent
The current size of the swapper file IF the specified
disk contains the system swapper file

When DiskStat is minimized the percent usage will be displayed in its


A dialog which displays the time DiskStat began execution, the
current time, and the largest and smalled values for available disk
space on the target drive during the current DiskStat session may be
invoked via an "Overall.." item on DiskStat's System Menu.

At all times when any of DiskStat's windows or dialogs have the input
focus, the F1 key will provide help and information on DiskStat and
Oberon Software.

If you wish to execute DiskStat from the OS/2 command prompt, you
should place the file DISKSTAT.EXE in a directory referred to in your
PATH environment variable. If you intend to execute DiskStat only
from a Presentation Manager group the placement of this file is less
critical because you will need to specify the full path for PM in any

The file DISKSTAT.HLP should be placed in a directory referred to in
your HELP environment variable or in the same directory as

[start] [path]DiskStat [driveletter] [refreshrate] [@pos]

driveletter must be a valid drive ID for your system,
i.e., "c:" or "e:". If this parameter is omitted,
the current drive will be assumed.
refreshrate is the number of milliseconds DiskStat will
wait before refreshing its statistics. If omitted,
this value defaults to 1000 (1 second).
@pos specifies the initial position of DiskStat's window on
the PM screen. "pos" is a number from 1 to 9
indicating screen position as per the diagram below.
If omitted or invalid, this value defaults to 5.

| 1 | 2 | 3 |
| 4 | 5 | 6 |
| 7 | 8 | 9 |

Figure 1. Screen Placement Options

Very little error checking is done on the command line parameters.
Invalid parameters are simply ignored. If an invalid drive letter is
given, unpredictable results are likely.

The parameters may be given in any order however, their meaning is
determined unambiguously from their format. Invalid parameters are
ignored; if any parameter is repeated, the last one appearing on
the command line will be the one used.
