MMDIR VERSION 1.0
WHAT IT DOES:
MMDIR is a compiled Pascal program designed to display and print
out directories of Multimate files. Unlike the standard DOS
directory command, MMDIR produces a two line listing for each
file which includes information from the document summary screens
of each included document. These listings are sorted
alphabetically by file name and formatted to fill a screen or
printer page depending on the specified output device.
Specifically, each MMDIR entry includes the DOS file name and the
following items from the Multimate document summary screen:
Multimate File Name
Date of Last Edit
Comment Line 1
Note: In order to fit these items in two lines on the 80 columns
of a standard monitor and printer, the last two characters of the
Author and Comment Line fields are truncated.
HOW TO USE MMDIR:
1. From the DOS prompt type MMDIR and press return. If the drive
or directory to be listed is not the current default, follow
MMDIR with the drive designation and/or path of the directory
where the Multimate files are stored.
Example: MMDIR C:\MM\DOC
2. If you wish to print the listing of files, include a "/P"
following MMDIR. The "/P" designation may precede or follow any
drive or path specification.
This version of MMDIR is limited to 200 files in each directory
MMDIR works on the assumption that any file in the specified
directory with a DOS extension of "DOC" is a Multimate file.
Files from other sources with this extension will be included in
the listing. Depending on the content of non-Multimate DOC
files, meaningless information may be printed.
