Contents of the NO.DOC file
NO.COM excludes specified files in a subdirectory from a specific action.
FORMAT: NO filespec Command [parameter]
NO.COM is designed for situations in which you want to apply a command
such as DELETE or COPY to all the files in a directory except one or two
NO *.BAS COPY *.* A:
copies all the files in your current subdirectory to drive A:, except for
those that have a .BAS extension. To exclude more than one file (or
catagory) you must use a separate NO command for each file on the command
line. Example: NO *.ASM NO *.COM DEL *.*. NO.COM operates by temporarily
setting the "hidden" attribute bit to "ON" to exclude specified files from
the command line action, then "unhides" the files after the action is com-
pleted. DO NOT USE with BACKUP or RESTORE.
