What's new in New Directory 2.20:

1. New /LH switch added for ND/2. If used, HPFS filenames will be
capitalized following the FAT configuration settings (i.e., DirCase,
FileCase, and MiscCase). This can be made the default by setting
the HpfsCase option in ND.INI to YES, or setting the /LH switch in
the NDCMD environment variable. Use /-LH to override such a default
setting.

2. Fixed: If ANSI.SYS is not loaded, ND_DOS.EXE and DESCRIBE.EXE could
leave the default screen color other than that it was started
with. A CLS command will take care of it, but it was annoying
(thanks Rudi Pittman) so it is now taken care of automatically.

3. If an environment variable called BBSANSI is found set, then ND_DOS will
use ANSI for color control instead of system calls. The display is a
bit slower, but this allows some BBS systems Drop To Dos function
redirection to work correctly with ND_DOS's colors.

4. The following new .INI settings were added:
KbSizeColor = 0107 ; Size color for kbyte files
KbSizeKColor = 0106 ; Size of k in kbyte files
MbSizeColor = 0107 ; Size color for mbyte files
MbSizeMColor = 0104 ; Size of m in mbyte files
ForceKbSizeColor = 0107 ; Size color for forced kbyte files
ForceKbSizeKColor= 0106 ; Size of k in forced kbyte files
ForceMbSizeColor = 0107 ; Size color for forced mbyte files
ForceMbSizeMColor= 0104 ; Size of m in forced mbyte files

HpfsCase = OFF ; HPFS is case sensitive

AutoSelect = 4 ; AutoSelect columns if <= 4 is result

5. Changed: ND (both versions) now ensures that at least 1 space is left
between filename and size in 4 column mode.

6. Fixed: Sometimes ND would not decode the .INI file correctly for some
color settings, and would cause a value of 0x0000 to be decoded.
This corresponds to Black on Black, so no display was seen for the
affected files. This has been corrected and extensively tested, so
you should not see this problem.

See ND.DOC for more detailed explanations of all new options.

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read: http://www.os2museum.com/wp/mtswslnk/
