CDIRS is a directory lister program written by Joshua Brodsky.
It works identically tp the DIRECTORY command, except that it prints
its output in five columns, making more effective use of screen space.
CDIRS will work on any terminal, and can be easily adjusted to print
any number of columns. If you have a 132 column terminal, it may be
convinient to print 8 columns instead of five. If you use many large
file names, and want wider columns, that can be accomplished, too. The
program is very flexible.
CDIRS works in three ways. One is to type CDIRS and push
CDIRS will print a listing of your connected directory.
Another way to use CDIRS is to type filenames after CDIRS. Example:
In this case, CDIRS will print two listings, one of the games
directory, and one of the subsys directory. A slash can be used at the
end of the command to turn on a printer. This will send ^Q in the
beginning and ^S at the end. This will select/deselect many printers
like the PAPER TIGER IDS 445. It will not work for AJ832's connected
to AJ510. If you want CDIRS to be able to do this, you'll have to
dig into the program yourself.
A third, more convinient, way is to define F: as SUB:CDIRS:
@DEFINE F: SUB:CDIRS
Now you can type all of the above. Just typing F: and pushing
return will list your directory. Typing a filename or slash after it
will list that filename.
