Ever wonder what's been missing from those parties you've had lately ?
Or why you couldn't sleep late at night ?


THE TRIPLE DIRECTORY (part of the LION Utilities)



Toying with the latest double-directory listers, and ones that appear
to have a triple directory, yet only support two directories (one split up
into different sections), I decided to invent a true, full-power tri-dir
viewer.

Obviously, such a program should have the usual necessities:


1) Color customization

2) Separate scrolling abilities, so you can scroll down one side, while
scrolling up another.

3) Sorting capabilities, including by EXTENSION, NAME, or SIZE.

4) Ability to save favorite colors, so user must not enter all the colors
every time the program is begun.

5) Multiple drive capabilities.


AND SOME EXTRAS !


6) Allow each file extension to have its own unique color.

7) An easy setup menu, that allows you to change one option without
having to run through the entire setup routine.

8) Rapid drive changing, without scanning entire drive before
performing change.

====== THE TRIPLE DIRECTORY LISTER =======
====== =======
=======================================================================



Usage: KAT3DIR


The keys used are extremely simple !They are designed like so that you
don't have to remember a long set of keys.
You just put your hand on the keyboard, and move your first three fingers
around.



scroll up left window

scroll up middle window

scroll up right window



o p [



l ; '



scroll down right window

scroll down middle window

scroll down left window






TO OPEN UP NEW DIRECTORIES FOR A WINDOW:


F1 Opens directory for window #1.


F2 Opens directory for window #2.


F3 Opens directory for window #3.







At the "Enter New Directory: " prompt, just type in which dir you want to
view (Eg: \MENU, \BACKUP, \TURBO\BIN ...).

NOTE: Make sure you include the backslash "\" before the directory !





Anytime during the program, to change drives, just type in that letter of
that drive.
Eg: Pressing the "A" moves us to drive A:, pressing "B" moves to B:, etc.




To alter the sorting of any window, press F4.
You are prompted for which window to sort, then
what standard to sort by (EXT, NAME, SIZE).


NOTE: Sorting by extension takes longer than the other two choices.
Please be patient, and don't fill up the keyboard buffer while
waiting for an extension sort !



To alter the colors, press F4, and you are run
through the "Setup" routine.



NOTE: Hidden/system files have a "" before them.

Read-Only files have a "" before them.

These special files are NOT sorted normally, and will be on top of
the list (to highlight their existence).








==========================================================================
========== SETUP OPTIONS ================================================
==========================================================================

Once into the "Setup" screen, you are presented with the following
menu:

[TextColors]
1. BLUE 2. GREEN 3. CYAN4. RED 5. MAGENTA
6. BROWN 7. LIGHTGRAY 8. DARKGRAY9. LIGHTBLUE 10. LIGHTGREEN
11. LIGHTCYAN 12. LIGHTRED13. L.MAGENTA 14. YELLOW 15. WHITE

[y].MSG 15 [1] Dirs: 15 [2]Main Box: 15

[3]Total Size Message: 15 [4]Total Files Message: 15

[5] Default Color: 15


Press Letter/Num or [ESC] exit+save:



At the above prompt, make SURE that 'Numlock' is off, and press the letter
or number to the left of the your choice. Here is an explanation of the
above choices:


[a].DOC 15


Color of files with extension

File extension

Letter to press to change option


So pressing "a" will bring a prompt--> "Color: ". You then look to the
top of the screen at the colors. If you want all files with the .DOC
extension to be RED, you would enter "4". The screen then updates itself,
and instead of:

[a].DOC 15

we have [a].DOC 4


The remainder of the extensions are obvious: .CFG, .OBJ, .TMP, .LOG
..etc.Once you are finished and satisfied with your color choices,
press ESC to exit and save your configuration file.


NOTE: Your color configurations are saved in the root directory in a
file called TRIDIR.CFG. Also, if the directory you specify does not
exist, the program beeps, and the prompt is removed.
