FILEMAN Version 1.03
FILEMAN is a small Microsoft Windows v 3.0 file manager for copying, moving,
renaming, and deleting files. In addition, other utilities are provided,
including the ability to change file attributes, to rename or delete
subdirectories and to perform file searches. If you like FILEMAN please
register it as described below.
The main window consists of a listing of the source files and directories on the
left and the destination files/directories on the right. The type of files
displayed can be altered by changing the file specification in the edit box at
the top. The filename must include a wild card character (* or ?). Otherwise,
the default specification of *.* is used.
Moving from one directory to another is accomplished by double clicking on the
appropriate path in the path list box. Double clicking on a file name will run
the file if it is a Windows application described in your WIN.INI file under the
[Extensions] section. Actually, because the the files listbox is a multiple
selection type, the file launched is the first highlighted file in the list box.
Deselect all the other files first by clicking on [None] before choosing a file.
