Have I not seen the entries in the HLP documenting tools which would enable the user to select [a] file (single or multiple, depending on switches - and no, I do not want SELECT, as I want to enable him to switch directories etc.) and also a graphical tree that he could to navigate drives/directories and pick a dir - or do they really not exist?

Maybe something for V12 then? But in the meantime, how do you script-gurus do that when you write batch-files?

There's @GETFILE[] (also @GETDIR[]) but I don't think they allow multiple
selections.

Also @GETFOLDER[] and @SELECT[]. None permit multiple selection. Hence the
suggestion: Multiple selection option for these functions. The question is
how to use multiple selections. Variants of @EXECARRAY seem reasonable, new
functions named
@GETFILEARRAY[array,...]
@GETDIRARRAY[array,...]
@GETFOLDERARRAY[array,...]
@SELECTARRAY[array,...]

where the ellipses ... indicate the current parameters of the non-array
functions.
