FIDfile list generator.

FID matches the files in your current directory (or optionally, any
directory you specify) with the descriptions found in a typical BBS
file list. FID then outputs a line of text for each entry in the
source directory. Each output line contains four(4) space-delimited fields
and assumes the following format;



BMGREP2.ARC 2969612-28-87 Boyer-Moore Search Text Files wit
FBACK.ARC 3686412-28-87 Best hd backup yet!
HEADHUNT.ARC 3686412-28-87 Get the proper includes in Turbo C

The first three fields were generated from the file data in your directory.
Field 4, the file description, was taken from field 4 of the input text
file.


======== Here's how to use FID.... =======

C> fid bob.log

here fid will generate a file list from files contained
the current directory, and combine them with descriptions
which are contained in the file bob.log. BOB.LOG must
look like a BBS file list.


C> fid -d \pcb\up dir15 bob.log

here FID will generate a file list from files contained
in the directory \pcb\up and will use descriptions
found in the files "dir15" and "bob.log".


If you don't specify any file name, fid will act as a filter,
so that you may combine its use with the output of other programs.
For example;

fid -d \pcb\dl10 < biglist > dl10.new

will generate a file list of the directory \pcb\dl10 using the
descriptions found in biglist, and output the result to the
file "dl10.new".


If input is taken from multiple files, the first description
encountered for a particular file-name will be used. If the -n
option is used, later descriptions will replace earlier ones.


======== Options ========

Fid supports the following options;

-d specify source directory
-c specify field # for description
default is field # 4

-ndescriptions which appear later in lists
will replace earlier descriptions
