Now here is a real gem... Do you have so many zip or arj files in your
download directory that you forget what they are? Or even archives on
floppies? This program will read the FILE_ID.DIZ or DESC.SDI that is stored
in some archives. Just put the newest version of PKUNZIP AND ARJ in your
path. Then tell this program where to find some zip or arj files. The
correct syntax for entering a directory is:

example:

c:\download
c:\download\temp

or if you want drive a: in the root directory:

a:\

Once the program has a valid directory, it will pull up a scrolling menu of
files that it found in that directory. Just use you arrow keys or Page
up/down keys to select a file. If you have a lot of files and you want
a specific one, just hit the first letter of that file. That will take you
instantly to the section your file is in. Press Enter on the file your want
to know about and.... That's it.
