Now that the legal language is out of the way, here is how you use
these programs:

To hide a directory, enter the command:

HIDEDIR directory_path password

where directory_path is the full or partial path name of the
directory you want hidden and password is a two (2) letter
password you want to use to hide the directory. For example:

HIDEDIR c:\test aa - this will hide the directory C:\TEST
with a password of AA.

To show a directory hidden by HIDEDIR, enter the command:

SHOWDIR directory_path password

where directory_path is the full or partial path name of the
directory you hide with HIDEDIR and password is the two (2)
letter password you used to hide the directory. For example:

SHOWDIR c:\test aa - this will show the directory C:\TEST
with a password of AA (if these were
the parameters used with HIDEDIR).

HIDEDIR can only be used to hide directories that do not have
extentions (.XXX) and are not already hidden. SHOWDIR can only be used
to show directories that have been hidden with the HIDEDIR command.
Any comprehensive DOS utility program (such as PCTOOLS or NORTON
Utilities) will be able to find directories hidden with these commands.
These commands are only to be used to protect files from the casual
user.

WARNING: THESE COMMANDS HAVE BEEN TESTED USING PC-DOS 3.2 AND PC-DOS
3.3 ON IBM (PC, XT, AT AND PS/2) MACHINES ONLY. THEY SHOULD WORK
CORRECTLY ON ANY PC/MS-DOS 3.x COMPATIBLE MACHINE. BEFORE USING THESE
COMMANDS IN A PRODUCTION ENVIRONMENT (ON LIVE DIRECTORIES), TEST THEM
ON YOUR MACHINE ON A NEWLY FORMATTED FLOPPY DISK FIRST. IF THEY WORK
CORRECTLY THERE, THEY WILL PROBABLY WORK ON ANY OF YOUR DIRECTORIES.

These programs were written entirely using TURBO PASCAL Version 4.0 and
contain no assembly language or direct calls to PC/MS-DOS.
