I just want to interrupt it, not make it pause ... you know, like DIR, PDIR, FFIND. It'd be useful especially considering that recursion is the default.
This command took quite a long time. I couldn't interrupt it. It seems to show a couple problems.
v:\> timer & regdir /v /d hklm | ffind /k /v /m /t"JPSoft" & timer
Timer 1 on: 13:52:05
PeriodShortcut : REG_DWORD : 1
Timer 1 off: 13:58:52 Elapsed: 0:06:47.086
1. It didn't do what I asked it to do!
2. the time!!! ... the TCC running REGDIR showed 0 CPU for most of those 6+ minutes. In sharp contrast, my (ancient) REGFIND.EXE can go through HKLM, looking for "PeriodShortcut" (finding 536 of them) in about 11 seconds.
I'll experiment more.
