GO ver 2.20 By Kenneth E. Sandquist Jr.
Vision Software March 16, 1992

------------------------------------------

Go was written for obvious reasons! I have a 130 meg harddrive and
trying to keep up with where all my directories have gone to is tedious to
say the least! So along came GO. GO will allow you to locate the occurrence
of any directory on your drive(s) and, if you specify, drop you into that
directory.

It's that simple.

Usage: GO [parameter]{d:}DirName
Where parameter:
no parameter = find the first occurrence of DirName and change
to that directory.
-ad= find ALL occurrences of DirName on default
drive ONLY and ask which directory to change to.
-af= find ALL occurrences of DirName on ALL drives
and ask which directory to change to (including
floppies).
-df= find All occurrences of DirName on default drive
and floppies ONLY.
-a = find ALL occurrences of DirName on ALL drives
and ask which directory to change to.
-d = search default drive ONLY for first occurrence
of DirName and change to that directory.
-f = search ALL drives for first occurrence of
DirName and change to that directory.
(including floppies)
d: = drive on which to search for DirName.

HINT:
To achieve maximum performance from this program, it is a good idea to
optimize your hard drive(s) with a program like Norton's Speed Disk or
Spinrite!

Example:

GO -a TEMP

Will search all directory levels (branches) on ALL drives (EXCLUDING
floppies) for every occurrence of the directory 'TEMP' and prompt you for the
directory you want to change to.

Likewise:

GO -a TE*

Will search all directory levels on ALL drives (EXCLUDING floppies) for
every occurrence of directories beginning with the letters 'TE' and prompt
you for the directory you want to change to.

GO will also give you a "Second Chance"(TM) to search for the NEXT occurrence
of DirName. Example:

If you tell GO to find the first occurrence of the TEMP directory:
GO TEMP
and you find that it is not the particular TEMP directory you wanted,
you can type the same command line - GO TEMP - and GO will search for
the NEXT directory matching TEMP.

NOTE:
The "Second Chance"(TM) is limited to just that - a second time. Typing the
same command line more than twice will just loop you through the first two
matches!

That's it!

If you make a mistake, you can interrupt the search by hitting - C
during the search. The program will drop back to where you started.
