STORM(tm) -- STORage Maintenance system
Package to scan and manipulate directory trees and files.
This package performs several functions:

1. Files may be deleted globally, starting from any specified node
on the directory tree of any drive. User must confirm each
delete before it takes place - no surprises! Further, you may
view the file (assuming it is viewable) before making up your
mind.

2. Similar to function 1, but files are only displayed with no
opportunity to delete. Similar to, but 20-30% faster than Peter
Norton's FileFind program.

3. A display of the directory structure of any drive can be
obtained. Similar to, but 60-70% faster than the DOS TREE
command.

4. A storage summary for any device can be provided, listing each
directory on the device, along with the total number of bytes
stored in that directory and the percentage of total usage
represented by that directory. Hidden and system files are
included in the calculation of the summary.

5. A listing of the complete directory of the device, sorted
optionally by name.ext, size, or path, can be produced. Name,
extension, size, date, time, and file attributes are listed.
Hidden and system files are included.

6. A listing of possible duplicate files can be produced. Possible
duplicates are defined as those files having the same name (only
-no extension) and size. Hidden and system files are included.

The file attributes are listed as:

S = System file
H = Hidden file
D = Directory
R = Read-Only file
A = File has been archived (e.g., with BACKUP)


In order to operate properly, a console driver must be installed
on your system. Usually ANSI.SYS is the driver installed, however
any equivalent such as FANSI-CONSOLE(tm) may be used. If you are



-1-







not sure whether such a driver is installed on your system, refer
to your DOS reference manual or type out the file called
CONFIG.SYS which will be located in the root directory of your
boot disk. You will see a line like "DEVICE=ANSI.SYS" if the
driver is installed.

Assuming that the driver is installed, STORM may be invoked by
typing the DOS command line

STORM []

{Note: The brackets, "[" and "]" are NOT to be typed as part of
the command. They simply indicate that is
optional.}

If the optional is omitted or is invalid, you
will be presented with an opening menu, prompting you for a pri-
mary function code. This opening menu can be bypassed by supply-
ing a code from the following list.

The seven valid function codes are as follows:

D = List potential (D)uplicate files on the printer. Potential
duplicate files are those which have the same and
size. Note: The file name only is considered - NOT
.. Presentation will be in order of decreasing
size.

E = Perform a confirmed (E)rasure of files matching a mask which
you will provide later. Optionally, you may view a file
(assuming that it is viewable) prior to making the
delete/save decision.

F = List the (F)ull contents of a drive on the printer. Sort
order will be .; optionally, you may
select . or .
as the sort order.

L = (L)ocate all files matching a mask which you will provide
later.

S = Display a (S)ummary of disk useage on the console. Useage
will be listed by subdirectory, and will be presented both in
bytes and as a percent of total usage.

T = Display the directory (T)ree structure on the console.

X = e(X)it to DOS.

Once you have entered a valid function code, you will be pre-
sented with a second menu, which will prompt you for Device, Path,
and File Spec., as appropriate to the function you selected on the
opening menu. Certain default values will be displayed. To select
a default, simply press . To override the default, enter the
desired item and press .

ACKNOWLEGEMENT
--------------

Much heartfelt gratitude to our BETA-test panel: John Griffin,
Wallace Kendall, Steve Meginniss, John van Horn, John Weske, and
George Walker, all of the Central Maryland Microcomputer Users'
Group (CMMUG). Their suggestions gave STORM many of the useful
qualities which it has. Don't blame them, however, for any defici-
encies you find. WGM&AL takes full credit for those!!!
