GLOBAL.COM
----------

USAGE: GLOBAL

Global executes any dos command or program on an entire directory tree.

For example, if you log to the root directory and execute "GLOBAL DIR" then
you will see a directory listing of every directory and sub-directory on
your hard disk.

If you execute "GLOBAL DIR PLAY.DOC", then you will find all occurences of
PLAY.DOC on your hard disk.

You can even use non-dos commands like "GLOBAL DIRS *.WKS" would show you the
total disk space occupied by all .wks files in each directory on your hard
disk.

Global.com starts from the current directory and goes down the directory tree.
To cover the whole disk, start in the root directory. To just cover part of
the hard disk, start in a sub-directory.

  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/
