Do you have any suggestions to improve DISKALOG? Let us know:
DISKALOG is a utility that allows the user to add
descriptions and comments (up to 300 characters in length) to
each file name (including directories) on a disk.
For instance, in DOS, the "DIR" command will result
in the following directory listing:
Volume in drive B is EXAMPLES
Directory of B:\
BROWN_R EST 1725 5-23-86 2:30p
COMMAND COM 23612 3-21-86 12:03p
TELCOM COM 1523 12-23-86 11:34p
CHECKIT EXE 9680 3-01-86 10:21p
PCSTRING $$$ 8234 4-11-86 12:00p
BCKUP EXE 23404 7-07-86 5:27p
6 file(s) 245323 bytes free
Not bad for DOS' DIR command. But if you don't have an
excellent memory, how do you keep track of what each file does?
Or what are the contents of each file? This is where DISKALOG
For instance, the above directory listing after being
DISKALOGed can become this:
DISKALOG 3.10 BYTES FREE: 245,323 TOTAL: 362,496 FILES: 6

User added descriptions
DISKALOG will run on IBM PC's (and true compatibles)
using DOS 3.0 and above and a minimum 128K RAM. Versions 1.x
and 2.x limited the user to a maximum of 250 files per
directory. This restriction has been removed with version 3.x.
The maximum number of files displayed is now determined by the
free memory available.
At the DOS prompt, type ---> DLOG then
The above command will load DISKALOG and will instruct
the program to read the default drive. If the user wishes to
load DISKALOG but read a directory other than the one on the
default drive, then add the pathname after "DLOG". Here are
some examples of proper format:
After loading, DISKALOG will present the user with a
file directory listing (somewhat similar to DOS' DIR listing
display). At this point you can begin adding any file
comments and notes by pressing the key. A pop-up
window will then appear in which you can add your comment
You can select the file you wish to add comment notes
to by using the cursor control keys. For example:
DOWN ARROW: Moves the highlighted bar down to the next file.
UP ARROW: Moves the highlighted bar up one position. If at the
top of the first page, the cursor moves into the "DISK NOTES:"
field, where the user can add a general comment concerning the
files on that particular disk/directory.
PAGE UP: Moves the bar up to the top of the page. If the bar
was already at the top of the page, then will display
the previous page (if one exists).
PAGE DOWN: Moves the bar down to the bottom of the page. If
the bar was already at the bottom of the page, then
will display the next page (if one exists).
HOME: Will move the marker bar to the very first file.
END: Will move the marker bar to the last file.
Entering descriptions, comments, notes:
As previously stated, to add a description to any file
simply press the key. The pop-up comment note editor
works much like a text editor.
While in the comment note editor the ,
