FAST installation: (assuming 4DOS is installed )
1) put 4DIZ.EXE, PKUNZIP.EXE and ARJ.EXE in a directory
2) add this directory to the PATH environment variable (in AUTOEXEC.BAT)
3) add "4D = 4DIZ /W /V /Q *.*" to your alias.lst
or add "ALIAS 4D = 4DIZ /W /V /Q *.*" to your AUTOEXEC.BAT
4) reboot

Now you've only to type 4d to describe all ARJ and ZIP archives in
the current directory.


Purpose:
DIZCRIBE describes all the .ZIP files in a directory. It
cooperates with 4DOS's DESCRIPTION ability. Nothing more to say:
use 4dos ! (Be sure to have your `maxdescription` variable in
the 4dos.INI file as large as possible.)

It also uses the FILE_ID.DIZ files, which are in almost every
archive file. The description from these FILE_ID.DIZ's are stored
in descript.ion and voila, the description appears when typing DIR.
Be sure to have both PKUNZIP and ARJ in your path.

Usage: 4DIZ [options] filename ...
where options is a combination of:
/q quiet mode (absolutely no text display)
/d debug mode: a big load of text
/w wrap lines from descriptions
/s smart describing: only the first one from a serie
/v very smart describing: the first description is
divided over the whole family
/e exclude lines with less than 4 alphanumerical characters
/z followed by a space and a FILENAME:
use FILENAME to extract ZIP-archives (i.e. PKUNZIP)
/a followed by a space and a FILENAME:
use FILENAME to extract ARJ-archives (i.e. ARJ)
/h or /? this screen
and filename ... is a list of filenames or wildcards (or both).
There is, however, a limit to the amount of parameters: this program
checks only the first 127 characters or so.
(that's because of this *&#%^$! compiler)

And there's also a limit to the amount of files to describe. When you
are describing more than 100 files an (m)allocation error will occur.
The "@X**"-codes are always skipped. (Who would like to see them ?)
Anyway...have fun using this util....

My favourite command-line is: 4diz /w /v /q *.*
of course this is an alias: alias 4d = 4diz /w /v /q *.*
Now I only have to type 4d.....and all the files in my directory
are described !!!

I'm born in Holland in 1976. And now I'm studying in Utrecht.
(That's also in the Netherlands.)
I'd like to hear what you think of my program. I'll fix all
bugs (when reported) as soon as possible. Please mail me your
suggestions etc. I'll be happy to code them and send you the
new version.....
