    Hi all,

    I have ran into something I think might be a bug. I execute the following rexx program in the command.com
    box of Win/Xp...

    Call SysFileTree "J:\backups\daddy\email*.*","file","SF"
    do i=1 to file.0
    parse var file.0 idate itime size attrib fname
    say file.0
    end;

    The "J" drive on my system is a Network Attached storage unit via a Linksys NSLU2. The Sysfiletree runs a long time and just returns the number of files and nothing else. I read there was a 10G limitation on file size but I don't think is the issue, the same command but changed to my "C:" drive works fine...

    Anyone have any ideas...

    Regards,
    Scott

     
    • Don't see how it could work. In the parse and say line you should be using file.I not file.0?

      Call SysFileTree "J:\backups\daddy\email*.*","file","SF"
      do i=1 to file.0
      parse var file.0 idate itime size attrib fname
      say file.0
      end;

      Yep, that was my fault, I fixed it and it now works, I was too quick on the trigger..
