WDIR

Syntax

WDIR [#ch,] [wild] or

WDIR \file [,wild] (Toolkit II only)

Location Toolkit II, THORs

WDIR allows you to produce a list of all of the filenames on a given medium which match with the specified wildcard. If wild contains a device name, then a list of all of the files on that device which match with the wildcard is printed out to the specified channel (default #1). If however, a device is not specified, the default data device is used.

The second variant is only supported by Toolkit II and allows you to send the results to the specified file instead of sending it to a channel. If file does not include a valid device, the default data device is used, and if the file already exists, you will be asked whether or not you wish to overwrite it. The file is then opened by the WDIR command, the list of files written to it and then closed again.

Examples

WDIR \ser1, flp1___scr

will produce a list of all of the files on flp1_ whose names end with _scr.

WDIR my

lists all files in the current directory which start with my.

WDIR _my

lists files which start with my or contain _my somewhere.
