Program: CHUNT.EXE
Version: Version 1.0
Date: October 1988

Copyright(c) 1988 by John Crouch


Syntax:

CHUNT [d:] string


Where d: is an optional drive letter and 'string' is the string of
characters within a file name.



INTRODUCTION

CHUNT will search and find a file anywhere on the disk, which
contains the string specified. To specify the file to find, the
program accepts a string on the command line. This is a string of
characters which can be anywhere in the file name.

There are many programs available that seem to perform this same
task. But this program is unique from other programs that find files
on the disk, because other programs use the file specification
exactly like DOS.

For example, if you give the DOS command

"DIR *DAY*.*"

DOS would give you all files just as if you had given it the command

"DIR *.*"

This is not what you may desire in some situations. With this HUNT
program you can give the command

"CHUNT DAY"

and the program will show you any file on the disk with the
characters "DAY" anywhere in its name.






CHUNT.EXE - Version 1.0 by John Crouch



Example:

Display any file on disk C: with the characters "COMM" in the
file name.


CHUNT C: COMM


CHUNT - Find a File on the Disk, Version 1.0
Copyright (c) 1988 by John Crouch

Searching for all files with "COMM" in the name on drive C:

C:\
command.com 25,308 12:00am Tue Feb 2 88

C:\COMM\PC3
command.pc3 67,726 1:46pm Sat Apr 16 88

C:\MASM
tsrcomm.asm 63,146 6:28pm Mon Jan 4 88
tsrcomm.com 6,202 6:30pm Mon Jan 4 88

C:\TURBOC\TEST
tccomm.arc 45,056 1:16pm Fri Oct 9 87

5 matching files found.


You can see in this example that if you knew you had a file with the
letters COMM in the file name but could not remember exactly what the
file name is, this program would help you find the file on the disk.
With other file finding programs you would be tempted to give it the
file specification "*COMM*.*". This would not work, they would give
you every file name on the disk.


CHUNT will return an ERRORLEVEL for batch file operation, which
represents the number of matching files found. If an error occurs in
the execution of the program it will return an ERRORLEVEL of 255, the
maximum ERRORLEVEL available from DOS. So, if there are more than
254 matching files found, CHUNT will still return 254, since 255
would be an error value.

Pressing any key while the program is running will cause the screen
display to pause. Press another key to resume the display.
