The On-line Help Window==========================fLIST presently supports the following window navigation keys; "D" or Down Arrow - Scroll forward one line "U" or Up Arrow - Scroll backward one line "Ctrl-D" or PgDn - Scroll forward one page "Ctrl-U" or PgUp - Scroll backward one page "ESC" - Close On-line Help window 2. Basic Fundamentals=====================fLIST is a powerful file management tool which can dramaticallyimprove your productivity when used to its full potential. fLISTprovides a scrollable, full-screen directory display with a commandline for every file shown. Commands may be entered one at a time orbatched to suit your needs. fLIST allows you to combine severalgroups of files into a single List as well as switch quickly betweenmany different Lists. 3. File Selection=================fLIST greatly extends the standard DOS wildcards used to select filesby adding pattern matching much like the UNIX shells (Bourne, C-Shelland Korn). Patterns give you tremendous control over which fileswill be selected for the List. Note that any non-wildcard within apattern must exist in the filename to match, so "*.*" will matchfiles with extensions only (use "*" to match files with or withoutextensions). 4. Selection Patterns=====================fLIST presently supports the following selection patterns: * - Any character, zero or more ? - Any character, exactly one [AEIOUY] - Any character within set [!AEIOUY] - Any character NOT within set [0-9A-F] - Any character within set, in ranges {A,BCD,XYZ} - Any string within set For example, "\BIN\*" matches all files in the "\BIN" directory; "*X"matches all files ending in "X"; "*.{EXE,COM}" matches all files withextensions of ".EXE" or ".COM". 5. List Manipulation====================fLIST allows you to combine up to nine (9) groups of files in a singleList. Each group is selected using patterns as described above. Youmay also create an unlimited number of Lists. fLIST will attempt tokeep all Lists in storage, but will automatically discard and recreateLists as required by storage limitations. Lists are arranged in acircular ring which may be traveled in either direction as desired. 6. Command Execution====================Both fLIST and DOS commands may be executed from the command lineswithin the List or by assigning them to a key. When executingcommands assigned to keys, the command will be associated with thefile under the cursor. To execute a command, simply type the commandin the command line and press a key defined as "EXECUTE" (Ctrl-X bydefault). fLIST will append the name of the file to the command,execute it and, for DOS commands, comment the command so it will beignored by subsequent EXECUTEs. To execute the same command again,just delete the comment character ("*" by default) and press theEXECUTE key again. 7. fLIST Commands=================fLIST presently supports the following command set: /A [pattern] - Append files matching "pattern" /B - Cursor to last file in List /C - Cancel all Lists (Terminate fLIST) /F [pattern] - Find next file matching "pattern" /F+ [pattern] - Find next file matching "pattern" /F- [pattern] - Find previous file matching "pattern" /H - Open "On-line Help" window /K - Open "Key Definitions" window /L [pattern] - Create new List of files matching "pattern" /L+ [count] - Select next "count" List(s) /L- [count] - Select previous "count" List(s) /M command - Process marked files using "command" /O command - Omit appended filename from "command" /Q [count] - Quit "count" List(s) /R [pattern] - Remake List of files matching "pattern" /SD - Sort by descending Date/Time /SE - Sort by ascending Extension /SG - Sort by ascending Group /SN - Sort by ascending Name /SS - Sort by descending Size /T - Cursor to first file in List /U - Update List from disk /X - Execute all command lines = - Repeat last DOS command ? - Recall last DOS command / - Locate this file at top of screen /num - Locate file "num" at top of screen /+num - Locate next "num" files at top of screen /-num - Locate previous "num" files at top of screen Any fLIST commands which accept patterns will append the currentfilename to the command if no other pattern was specified. Forexample, if the "/A" command is entered for a directory, fLIST willappend the name of the directory as the pattern thereby appending allfiles in the directory to the List. 8. Filename Manipulation========================Unless otherwise directed using the "/O" command, fLIST will alwaysappend the filename to the end of any command prior to executing thecommand line. The filename, or any component of it, may be insertedexplicitly at a different location which will prevent appending thefilename at the end of the command. 9. Filename Components======================fLIST presently supports the following filename components: / - All components (D:\PATH\NAME.EXT) /D - Drive component (D:) /E - Extension component (.EXT) /N - Name component (NAME) /P - Path component (\PATH\) 10. Video Configurations========================fLIST supports a wide variety of video configurations. Unlessindicated by the "TERM=" environment string, fLIST will assume that a100% IBM compatible video system is being used. fLIST supports bothEGA and VGA video systems in small font (43/50 line) mode as well asMDA, CGA, MCGA, EGA and VGA video systems in 25 line mode. Support isalso provided for both monochrome and color ANSI video systems formachines which are not 100% IBM compatible but which have IBMcompatible keyboard scan codes. Even the maverick Wang PC/APC issupported using ANSI output and custom keyboard scan code conversion.The "TERM=" environment string may be overridden via the /Tx commandline option described below. 11. TERM= Environment String============================fLIST presently supports the following TERM= strings: TERM=ansi-pc - Set MONO ANSI mode (ANSI driver required) TERM=bios-pc - Set IBM BIOS mode TERM=c_ansi-pc - Set COLOR ANSI mode (ANSI driver required) TERM=ega-pc - Set 43-line EGA mode TERM=ibm-pc - Set 25-line MDA/CGA/MCGA/EGA/VGA mode TERM=vga-pc - Set 50-line VGA mode TERM=wang-pc - Set Wang PC/APC mode 12. Command Line Options========================fLIST presently supports the following command line options: /Efile - Set Error filename (FLIST.ERR) /Hfile - Set Help filename (FLIST.HLP) /Pfile - Set Profile filename (FLIST.PRO) /TA - Set mono ANSI mode (TERM=ansi-pc) /TB - Set IBM BIOS mode (TERM=bios-pc) /TC - Set color ANSI mode (TERM=c_ansi-pc) /TE - Set 43-line EGA mode (TERM=ega-pc) /TI - Set 25-line IBM mode (TERM=ibm-pc) /TV - Set 50-line VGA mode (TERM=vga-pc) /TW - Set Wang PC/APC mode (TERM=wang-pc) 13. fLIST On The Wang PC/APC============================In order to redefine the Wang PC/APC keyboard, it is necessary tomanually translate the Wang key name to a corresponding IBM key name.Every attempt was made to make this translation as easy as possible,but some trade-offs had to be made. Note that some Wang keys are notsupported by fLIST due to a lack of corresponding IBM key names. Help - Supported as "F33" Shift-Help - Supported as "F34" Cancel - Supported as "F35" Shift-Cancel - Supported as "F36" Exec - Supported as "F37" Shift-Exec - Supported as "F38" Shift-Insert - Supported as "F39" Shift-Delete - Supported as "F40" Prev - Supported as "PgUp" Shift-Prev - Supported as "Ctrl-PgUp" Next - Supported as "PgDn" Shift-Next - Supported as "Ctrl-PgDn" Shift-Up - Not supported Shift-Down - Not supported Shift-Left - Supported as "Ctrl-Left" Shift-Right - Supported as "Ctrl-Right" Print - Supported as "PrtSc" Shift-Print - Not supported Erase - Not supported Shift-Erase - Not supported

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read: http://www.os2museum.com/wp/mtswslnk/
