BSEditor: What is MaxDIR?
MaxDIR is a DOS DIR command "Alternative". It is just that.
What you get with DOS's DIR Command:
When you type DIR at a DOS prompt (C:\dir) or (A:\dir) and press Enter, you get a listing of all the files in the directory. The regular DIR command shows you the disk's name and serial number and a listing of its files. If there are more than 20 files, the screen begins to scroll and you begin to lose whatever was at the beginning. You can type DIR /P to force the listing to pause when the screen fills up. That way, you get a chance to see what was at the beginning before it begins to scroll up. Or, if you type DIR /P /W, it shows you the files in columns, but without any other information about the files, like their size. What you end up spending most of Your Time doing, is scanning the computer screen looking for what file you want, or typing DIR with wildcards to find more info about any given file. None of this is enough when you have more than 20 or 30 files (or more) in any directory.
What you get with MaxDIR:
MaxDIR makes all of this simple with one easy command. DI.EXE. MaxDIR shows you a directory of files, alphabetized and colored by file type, and in 4 columns, which utilizes the entire screen to show you up to 200 file at a time. Since you'll know what the color is for each file type, and you'll know they are alphabet ized, you can look at a Directory Listing and instantly find what you are looking for. Also, MaxDIR shows each file's size, which makes it even more useful. MaxDIR shows you Bytes Free on the disk, the Disk Type, the space used by the files listed, and, it shows how much of your disk the files actually used, by looking at "Cluster" sizes and then calculating the actual space "consumed" by each file, which it totals for you at the bottom of the listing. MaxDIR shows you how many files there are, how many directories there are, and the percentage full of the disk, along with the other standard information. you can free download MaxDIR 2.29 now.
