PROGRAM: VDL.COM

GENERAL FUNCTION: Delete files with verification

WHY IS IT NEEDED? DOS delete function does not ask for verification.
Verification allows you to selectively delete also, when names are
similar.

INSTALLATION: None.

FORMAT: VDL [drive:][path][filespec]

EXAMPLES: VDL E:\TEST\JUNK*.?? [Gives you the option to delete
files on drive E, in subdirectory
TEST, beginning with "JUNK", having
an extension with two characters]

HOW TO USE IT: To selectively delete files matching a file specification,
including drive, directory, and name. The matching file with directory
is displayed with name, size, date, and time, following by a "?". Press Y
or y to delete, Esc to end program, anything else not to delete but to
continue.

OTHER EFFECTS: None.

SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS: Works with DOS 2.X only.

COMMENTS: Other delete with confirm programs work with DOS 1.1 and 2.X,
but do not support subdirectories.
