******************* WHAT DIRS WILL DO *********************************

and Page Down to "search" through a displayed directory.

2. Sort the display by Filename, Extension, Time and Date, or
have no sorting done at all.

3. After the first page is displayed you can print the current page
or print all the pages at one time.

With DIRS you will:

1. Have Hidden and System files displayed.

2. Have numeric values displayed with PUNCTUATION.

3. Have all Attributes of a file displayed.

************************** INSTALLATION & USE ************************

To install DIRS copy DIRS.EXE from this diskette onto your hard drive
into a directory that is pointed to by a PATH statement.

Example "COPY A:DIRS.EXE C:\DOS" will copy DIRS.EXE to drive C & directory \DOS

To use DIRS enter the following format.

The name of the program

(optional) The path name of the directory to be
searched and any wildcard characters you may desire.
This is in the same format as the "DIR" command in "DOS"

(optional) Sort options:
/t or /d = Sort by date and time

/e or /x = Sort by Extension, then File name.

(all blank) = (Default) Sort by Filename including
the Extension.

/ = No sorting done.

NOTE! The first 3 options will also place any
Sub-directory names first.

This example would have DIRS search a directory called
dirs\yourdir/d "yourdir" and display the names in date and time order.

************************** AFTER THE DISPLAY ************************

After the directory is displayed you may:

= End display and return to DOS.

= Move the display up one line.

= Move the display down one line.

= Move the display up one page.

= Move the display down one page.

= Same as above.

= Move the display up to first page.

= Move the display down to last page.

p or P = Will print the screen the same as the
key except the border is removed.

a or A = Same as p or P above except ALL of the found
names will be printed (not just what is displayed).
