What is AutoComment?
AutoComment is designed for the purpose of putting ZIP
comments on mass amount of files. Great for SysOps or other
people promoting things through ZIP comments.
Setting up AutoComment
The first thing you need to do is make a configuration file
for AutoComment. This is fairly simple. Using your favorite text
editor, make a file called ACOMMENT.CFG. The first line is the
full path of the ASCII file you wish to use for your comment. The
rest of the lines should be the directories of your ZIP files.
A typical example of ACOMMENT.CFG:
It doesn't matter if you have a trailing backslash or not on
the directory names.
Also make sure that PKZIP is in your DOS path.
Here's the easy part. Just go into the directory where you
have ACOMMENT.EXE and ACOMMENT.CFG, and type ACOMMENT. From there
on it takes all the ZIP files in all the specified directories and
puts your comment in them. It skips right over files without the
.ZIP extension, so you can have a directory with mixed files in it
and still get the job done right.
