Is there a profile for the DIR command ?
When I do a DIR command, I'd like to have the directories sort to to the top. Something like 'SORT * 1 10 38 150' would achieve. Is this possible ?
I built a (popup) menu that created a list/menu of currently-accessed disks that would allow mouse-clicked navigation throughout all directories on all disks. In case I re-invented something: Is there a feature on the DIR command which does this already ?
Finally, thanks very much for all your effort on this (THE) program/utility. In my experience, through two decades of use, it has been invaluable on countless systems and platforms: when other software environments/tools are unsuitable/unavailable/unstable, THE can be relied upon.
1-Add: if initial() then 'set defsort directory' to your profile
BEFORE any 'set reprof on'.
2-Not that I know of. I do have a macro that shows a popup of your
configured 'favorite' disks/directories so you can easily choose one without
having to deal with disks/directories you're not interested in. If the disk
or directory isn't there, nothing appears. Kinda handy for moving between
(mostly) similar pc's and handling flash drives.
Les -- Thanks for the quick response. I added, per your suggestion, the 'set defsort directory' to my profile.
By the way, do you know what/how THE checks to see if (any) REXX is installed ? I re-installed OOREXX about a month ago and since then THE has (using the QUERY REXX command) been saying 'NONE'. I'm running Win-7 Professional. My REXX_HOME variable is set correctly. REXX_HOME is in the PATH. Yet, THE doesn't find REXX.
Sorry, I have no idea. Can you run Rexx programs from a Windows
Yes, from both CMD and PowerShell windows. I have programs with file-extensions of OREXX, as well as the standard REX extension, and both sets of files/programs execute normally.
I've tried re-installing REXX (twice). Can't remember if I tried re-installing THE. (sigh)
Ah well, when Mark gets the new, GUI version of THE ready-for-production, I'll install it and see what happens. Thanks for your assistance.
Mark is back from vacation, so as soon as he can I'm sure he'll
provide an answer.
I'm beta testing 3.3RC4 and there are some nice features there.
I can't use the new graphical interface because of my vision
Chuck: Any chance you installed 64 bit ooRexx? Check by using a
command window and do:
If it's 64 bit, uninstall it and install the 32bit version.
You might also check in Task Manager that RXAPI is running as a
Service (just guessing).
