    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.
