4DESC is a full-screen editor for file descriptions for MS-DOS filenames
and subdirectories. It presents a sorted listing of the chosen directory,
similar to the SELECT directory, and allows you to add, modify, or erase
descriptions for each file and subdirectory. Each description may be up to
200 characters long. The edit window scrolls horizontally for longer
descriptions. You may cut and paste descriptions from one file to another.
If a mouse is installed on your system, the edit cursor will follow mouse
movements. There is no separate mouse cursor. Press F1 while in the 4DESC
editor for keystroke definitions.

Edit file descriptions in the current directory:

C:\> 4desc

Edit file descriptions in the 4DOS directory:

C:\> 4desc \4dos


/help: Display the help screen before editing. Pressing any key or
mouse button switches to edit mode.

/mono: Force display to black and white (overrides auto-detection
of monitor type).

/dontask Do not ask whether to save the current description file when
changing directories: The descriptions will automatically be
saved. Be careful, this option may save unwanted changes too!

d:\path: Edit file descriptions in another directory.
