3. BASIC: the most essential commands of UC
===========================================

This document describes the most essential commands of UC. No special
features are mentioned. UC is very easy to use.

You can order UltraCompressor II (tm) by filling out ORDER.FRM and sending
it to Ad Infinitum Programs.

This document contains the following paragraphs:

- A. Decompressing a complete UC archive
- B. Compressing a complete directory(tree) into an archive
- C. Making an archive damage protected
- D. Verbose list of the archive
- Z. Summary

To jump to a certain paragraph, press the corresponding letter. To
jump to a specific document/chapter, press the corresponding digit.
See chapter 1 paragraph E for an overview of all documentation.


3.A DECOMPRESSING A COMPLETE UC ARCHIVE.
========================================

Command: UC ES archive-name

Put the archive where you want the extracted files to be, and type
the command UC ES archive-name, where 'archive-name' is the name of
the archive (e.g. UC ES newstuff). All files in the archive will be
extracted.

UC ES works cautiously. It will never overwrite files, create
directories etc., without first consulting you.


3.B COMPRESSING A COMPLETE DIRECTORY (TREE) INTO AN ARCHIVE.
============================================================

Command: UC A archive-name

All files in the current directory are compressed into an archive
(e.g. 'UC A mydocs' creates mydocs.uc2). If the archive already
exists, only new and changed files are (re)compressed.

Command: UC AS archive-name

The files in the current directory and ALL subdirectories are
compressed into an archive (e.g. 'UC AS mydocs' creates
mydocs.uc2). If the archive already exists, only new and changed
files are (re)compressed.


3.C MAKING AN ARCHIVE DAMAGE PROTECTED.
=======================================

Command: UC P archive-name

The archive will become damage protected and it will remain damage
protected if you add files to it or delete files from it etc.. A
damage protected archive can recover from most disk errors without
losing ANY data. (The disadvantage of making archives damage
protected is that the archives become a little bit larger).


3.D VERBOSE LIST OF THE ARCHIVE.
================================

Command: UC VS archive-name

All files in the archive will be listed. The contents of all its
subdirectories will be listed as well.


3.Z SUMMARY.
============

UC ES name EXTRACT all files from archive name.uc2

UC A name COMPRESS all files in current directory into name.uc2
UC AS name COMPRESS all files in current directory AND its
SUBDIRECTORIES into name.uc2

UC P name make name.uc2 DAMAGE PROTECTED

UC VS name the full contents of the archive will be LISTED

  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/
