This program is done right! Normal sort is subdirectories first, then
hidden and system files, then by name alphabetically. Subdirectories,
hidden and system files are displayed in lower case. Files with hidden,
system, or read only attributes have an * next to them.
The display is a vertical sorted display with the width automatically
adjusting by the number of files. Page break is automatically adjusted
for output to different devices.
Default options are sort by name, 4 columns, direct video with color.
The /R option shows files that can run. (EXE, COM, BAT)
The /6 give you a 6 column display of names only. /5 shows just names
with and "*" next to the read-only, system, and hidden files. /4 shows
names and file size in K. /3 shows names and file size in bytes. /2
shows file size in bytes and date and time. /1 shows all of the above
and file attributes.
The /I option will cause the directory name to be displayed at the top
of the display:
*-*>> Directory of: C:\TURBO5\*.COM
The /O option sends output to the standard output handle instead of
directly to screen memory. You would use this option if you are running
this program over a modem, or if you're using a color card with a
composite monitor. The /O strips all color.
Output redirection is automatically detected and output is sent to the
dos standard output handle, (/O) and no pause, (/L) is automatically
selected. Using /O will allow this program to work correctly over a
Default options can be set using the Environment Strings.
SET D.EXE=/O/I selects Standard Output and Identify Directory.
This program will handle up to 16000 files in a single directory.
More than one filespec can be specified.
D *.PAS *.INC will list all the files that end with with the extension
of either PAS or INC.
Using D with other Computer Tyme Software:
D does not have a multiple subdirectory mode. You can get the same
effect as if it did using DoList and Whereis. Suppose you want a list of
everything on your hard disk.
WHEREIS/T|DOLIST D @L /I/1 >DIRLIST
Whereis/T lists all subdirectories on the current drive. This list is
piped into DoList which executes D on each of the directories. Output is
sent to DIRLIST, a text file, for later printing or editing.
