SCAN.BAT / FINDS.EXE Programs
[Author: Doug Dillmann, Grapevine Tx]
o SCAN is a BAT (2.0) command file to front-end for a string search
program FINDS.EXE (in C). SCAN is used to accept wild card input
describing the group of files (up to ten) to be scanned.
o FINDS.EXE needs two or three inputs which SCAN prepares for it:
- file to open for reading.
- first string to be searched for...
- second string to be searched for....
FINDS will display lines containing string 1 or string 2 and
the line number where either string was located.
NOTE: String inputs and lines being examined are considered in
an uppercase format (and will be displayed likewise).
