WHAT IT IS:
MOREMORE is a replacement for DOS's MORE utility. For those of you who
don't know what the MORE utility does, it simply paginates the standard
output device (your console). For example:
MORE < MOREMORE.DOC
Displays the contents of this file, one page at a
time on the console. You could also type:
TYPE MOREMORE.DOC | MORE
If you are unfamiliar with the redirection and pipe functions of DOS,
consult your documentation.
I wrote MOREMORE because I am a unix user. Unix's more utility provides
many more features than the DOS equivalent. This program does not provide
all of the features of the unix version but it does provide the ones which
I miss in the DOS version. The following features are supported:
- Advance one line (return)
- Advance one page (spacebar) (or any other key not listed here)
- Backup one page (B)
- Quit (Q) (or control-C)
- Display the percentage of the file that has been viewed (if possible)
- Accepts a single filename argument
This version of MOREMORE will accept a single filename (or device) argument.
Wildcard expansion is not supported. If you wish to view multiple files,
use a file viewer or the MOREWILD.BAT batch file included with this release.
SETUP AND USAGE:
1) Rename MOREMORE.COM to MORE.COM.
(At the dos command prompt type: RENAME MOREMORE.COM MORE.COM)
2) Get rid of DOS's MORE.COM.
(At the dos command prompt type: DELETE C:\DOS\MORE.COM)
Note: If you feel uneasy about deleting DOS's MORE, rename it to
something which will not interfere with the search hierarchy
(such as OLDMORE.COM).
3) Copy MORE.COM to your DOS directory.
(At the dos command prompt type: COPY MORE.COM C:\DOS\MORE.COM)
4) That's it! DOS will now use MOREMORE instead of its version of MORE.
Version 1.00 had a problem with lines longer than the screen width. This
has been corrected in version 1.01.
Version 1.00 had a bug which would lock up the computer if "MORE CON" was
attempted. This has been corrected in version 1.01.
Version 1.01 now allows the /? parameter. This parameter displays a breif
help screen. DOS 5 uses this feature for the on-line "HELP" utility.
DOS 6 uses this feature for the on-line "FASTHELP" utility.
Version 1.01 of MOREMORE is now shipped as a .COM file.
Previously it was an .EXE file.
