SHORT DESCRIPTION

This material is extracted from the XDIR manual contained
in the file XDIR.DOC that is included with XDIR. It gives a
quick overview only. Please read the manual also.

I've tried a number of the available DOS Shell programs and Hard
Disk Managers and am still left with two frustrations. DOS restricts
file names to 11 characters, not enough in my opinion. Also, I'm
always short of space on my hard disk. It's full of files that I
probably don't need. It would be nice to know how often I use
SUPERPRG.EXE, and what is it anyway?

XDIR is my solution to this frustration. XDIR is a replacement
for the DOS commands DIR and COPY. It allows you to add your own
comments to be displayed along with the normal DOS directory. You
won't have to remember what MPDPROG.MEM was all about. The directory
will remind you with a display like:

MPDPROG MEM 2620 01-17-87 2:19p Maxon Paper Div. Progress Report

XDIR allows you to edit these comments freely. You can copy or move
files between directories or to another disk, and the comment text
will automatically go right with it.

XDIR has seven modes: Help, Directory, Edit, Copy, Kill, Move and
Run. These modes are selected from the command line, e.g., XDIR /e,
and are explained in Section C.

In addition, XDIR has a number of display options that can be
selected as well. Options include: Pick, Sort, and alternate display
modes. These options are explained in Section D.

Additional utilities provided to registered users of XDIR include
XDCOUNT and XDUPDATE, which monitor file usage on your hard disk and
add information to the XDIR display on the number of times that each
file has been used and the date of the last use. Also provided are
XDZIP and XDUNZIP, which let you automatically save the XDIR comments
when you ZIP files and restore them when you UNZIP. Use of these
utilities is described in Section F.
