SHOW [D:FILENAME.EXT [A:]]


SHOW.COM IS AN ENHANCED DOS DIR COMMAND, WHERE ALL OR PART OF THE
FILE SPECIFICATION MAY BE OMITTED. IF THE DRIVE SPEC IS OMITTED,
THE CURRENT DRIVE IS ASSUMED. IF NO FILE NAME IS GIVEN, *.*
IS ASSUMED. THE SECOND OPTIONAL PARAMETER CAN BE USED TO SPECIFY
AN ALTERNATE DRIVE FOR THE FILES. IF THIS SECOND PARAMETER IS
GIVEN, SHOW WILL PRINT OUR THE AMOUNT OF SPACE THE DISPLAYED FILES
WOULD OCCUPY ON THIS ALTERNATE DRIVE AS WELL AS THE ACTUAL SPACE
AVAILABLE ON THE DRIVE. THIS IS USEFUL FOR DETERMINING IF A SET OF
FILES WOULD FIT ON A FLOPPY DISK.

THIS PROGRAM IS TAKEN FROM PC TECH JOURNAL , VOL. 4, NO. 5, FOR
MAY, 1986.

SEE ARTICLE FOR FURTHER DESCRIPTION AND INFORMATION.
THE ARTICLE IS "FINDING DISK PARAMETERS" BY GLENN F. ROBERTS.
