Move It Over Here v. 1.2 Copyright 1991
Just when you couldn't locate the file you were looking for... Having
to break out the File-Finding Util, locating the current place of your
file, pulling out the Moving Util, then typing in the entire pathname,
moving the file to your current directory.
No more !
Move It Over Here is specially designed for you. Simply place it in
your path, and when you are in desperate need of your file, Move It Over
Usage: MER [filename] [option]
/P Prompt before moving
/S Scan deeper directories
======== THE OPTIMAL SPEED ==============================================
To understand what "Scan Deeper Directories" means, you must first
understand how the program logic operates.
For the optimum speed, the only directories that are searched are
ones that are subdirectories of the root directory.
Eg: \TURBO will be searched, but
\TURBO\BIN will NOT be searched.
The program "skims" directories. A visual representation would be:
C:\ --- ------ ------ ------- ------- ------- ------- ----->
\/ \/ \/ \/ \/ \/ \/
subdir subdir subdir subdir subdir subdir subdir
Whereas the utility finds all directories that are immediately under
In order to find a "deeper" subdirectory:
You would use the "/S" switch. This allows MoveItOverHere to search all
subdirectories, no matter how deep.
Unless wildcards are specified (*.DOC), the file is directly searched,
and the program aborts. For example: if you have two files called
MYFILE.COM in a directory, the program will find the first instance of
that name, and move it.
To be more specific about which MYFILE.COM you want to move, please
use the "/P" switch. Once used, this allows you to see file specs of
MYFILE.COM (the size/date/time/location), and prompts whether you want
to move it or not.
1) Please be VERY VERY careful when using wildcards. This program moves
files extremely quickly (When I benchtested it, the util moved 52 files
within 2 seconds).
2) When using wilcards, please include the "." in the filename.
FILE.* These names are acceptable
*LIST* These names are NOT acceptable
3) If the file already exists in the current directory, you are prompted
to rename the file. If you do not rename the file, the old file
that was in your current directory is written over.
4) If you have any questions/comments regarding this utility, please
