Dumb Question ...

OK, I'm new to this program and I'm working my way through the manual. But in trying something out I seem to have hit a silly. Let's say I'm in C:\Users\John\, and I give a 'Dir' command. A list is generated, but it's clear lots of files/folders/junctions are not being displayed. I want to effectively issue a Dir <everything>, but can't find an easy syntax. Dir /a: works, presumably because no item can have all the attributes set (if the attribute set is to be valid).

But is there a better way to issue a dir <everything> command?

Thanks,

JB

This has been my dir alias since the days of 4DOS (20+ years ago):

alias @@[email protected] /J/H/Ou/A

(although I added the /T switch a couple months ago)

You may want to define these aliases in your alias file:

@@[email protected] /J/H/Ou/T/A
@@[email protected] /J/H/Od/T/A
@@[email protected] /J/H/Oe/T/A
@@[email protected] /J/H/P/Ou/T/A
@@[email protected] /J/H/P/Od/T/A
@@[email protected] /J/H/P/Oe/T/A
@shift-f5=dir /J/H/Ou/T/A
@shift-f6=dir /J/H/Od/T/A
@shift-f7=dir /J/H/Oe/T/A


F5: unsorted dir; F6: sorted by date; F7: sorted by extension.
Ctrl "adds" the pause switch; Shift allows entering extra parameters.

Thanks - I'll definitely have a play!
