    Hi

    Using TCC 11.00.44

    Does SELECT support ranges?
    The help file claims it does.
    But when I try it out - it does not.

    I frequently use

    dir /Od /[d]

    just to see today files in order in a directory.
    So I was surprised to find that

    SELECT /Od /[d] MOVE (*.TXT) backup

    did not work. SELECT did not like /[d].

    Thanks

    Look at the help a little more closely, and you'll see that ranges must
    *immediately* follow SELECT. In your example you've inserted a non-range
    argument between SELECT and the range.
