Program FindDupe is copyrighted and all rights and ownership
are kept with the author. You may use it, copy it, give it to
your friends but don't try to sell it. Because the devil will
get you and if I find out I will prosecute.

The program is a Turbo Pascal Program that reads the directories
of your disks - it really only works best with hard disks because
you don't usually have sub directories on floppies.

The program will print on paper (using Epson controls - only form
feed) or the screen.

It will give you a list of all files, sorted by file name, date,
time, size and directory they are in. It will also tell you if
the file is read only, hidden, system or sub directory.

It will give you a list of all duplicate named files on your disk,
with the same above information.

It will give you a Sorted Tree Dir of the files on your disk with
the above information.

If you are using this program and you find it of use in your
system then please contribute to support this means of providing
great software into the hands of people who need and use software
in their daily activities.

I am requesting $15.00 or what ever you thing is reasonable for a
program of this caliber -no more than $100,000.00-.

For businesses this fee is not optional. I will be willing to
discuss Site Licensing.

The command 'FINDDUPE ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOP' will cause FINDDUPE to search across
drives A, B, C, D, E, F, G, ... O, and P. Running this progam on your LAN
may be detrimental to your networks performance! Note: sorting may take a
large amount of temporary disk space. For 10K files, an 800K datafile is
used for intermediate storage of the sort. Make sure you have the space!

Hope this helps all those SYSOP's out in keeping thier BBS's free of duplicate
files on their multi-drive file systems.


Version 3.06 made by the author. I included the option to enter a
file name for known duplicates. You may have a condition where a
file name is duplicated in different sub-directories, but the file
is not a duplicate.

Create a file that is made up of the known duplicated file names ie.
READ.ME
AUTOEXEC.BAT
CONFIG.SYS
etc.
It is not necessary to have the file names capalized but each file
should be on a seperate line. I sample of the file is included in
the Arc file of this program.

NOTE:

A command line is used as input if entered else the default drive
is used.



NOTE:

Before you forget Please sent in your $15.00 registration fee and
I will make sure that you have the most resent version of the
of the program. If this program does not work on your computer
because of your configuration (i.e. Does not support windows)
please let me know also and I can provide a version for that.

Businesses the fee is not optional.



Note: I have been asked how many records will this program sort.

Borland will not give any assistance in trying to find out, by giving formulas
etc. So this is the best that I can figure out.

The program reserves about 63k for itself and the windows, and it will take
the rest of the available memory for sort work space. When it runs out of
memory then it writes the sort work data to disk. What ever is your default
drive.

On my machine I ran a CHKDSK and I had 219xxx free.

Finddupe would have been able to sort 2159 records, each one of them 73
positions long. This would have been a work space of 157461 in memory.
If I tried to sort more records than that then it would have written some
of them to disk. The work area in memory is divided into pages, each of
them less than 64K. You will have at least 3 work areas (PAGES) in memory
and when it writes to disk it will write a page. In my example I had 3 pages
each of them 157461 / 3 long or 52483 bytes. You will have more than 3 pages
when you have more than 64K * 3 <192K> of free memory. The max is 10 pages
64K * 10 = 640K.

When the program writes to disk, it will write a page from memory, and then
continue sorting. If it runs out of disk space then the program abends.
However if you have 360K of free space on your drive then it should handle
over 6000 records. (Again this is my assumption, because the sort work space
does not stay around after the job is over).


Version 3.06 made by the author. I included the option to enter a
file name for known duplicates. You may have a condition where a
file name is duplicated in different sub-directories, but the file
is not a duplicate.

Create a file that is made up of the known duplicated file names ie.
READ.ME
AUTOEXEC.BAT
CONFIG.SYS
etc.

It is not necessary to have the file names capalized but each file
should be on a seperate line. I sample of the file is included in
the Arc file of this program.

The record format is 1-12 positions (like a file Name) XXXXXXXX.XXX
If the file name is not a full 12 positions long then type it like
this CONFIG.SYS Not like this CONFIG .SYS. Do not put spaces in
the middle of the name.




Version 3.08 made by the author. I included the option to enter a
code to tell the program that you are processing on a Monochrome
monitor. The program will know if you have a monochrome controller
however, if you have a color graphics controller it will assume that
you also have a color monitor. This may not be the case.

On the command line type FINDDUPE M (For Monochrome)

If you are also entering the drive letters on the command line the
example might be like this: FINDDUPE CD M (For read drives C: and
D: on a Monochrome
Monitor.)
If you only have a drive M: the program will assume that you mean
monochrome. If you have multiple drives and M: just happens to be
one of them, then you will be OK. Type FINDDUPE GHIJKLMN (or what
ever your drives letters are.)




Version 3.09 made by the author because of the U.S. Post Office.

The U.S. Post office changed my address so I am reissuing this
program to change my address.



Version 3.09a made by the author to support search criteria
default is *.*. However you can select duplicate *.wks
files if you want. The program was also changed to support more
than 300 subdirectories. In this day of larger drives 300 is a bit
small. It was increased to 900 subdirectories. Hope that help all
you big machine types.
