    Hi Guys,

    Just found that Dir /2 or /4 doesn't work for me under TCC Prompt only Window. It does work under the TC 11 TCC Prompt DOS Window.

    Windows XP SP3, TC11 Build 40.

    Have I missed something?

    Regards,

    Ian

    Not sure what you're referring to -- TCC's DIR behavior is exactly the same
    whether it's stand-alone or in a Take Command tab window. (Except that
    you're likely to have a larger window when running in Take Command, so if
    you have LFN names > 39 characters you'll never be able to use /2 in an
    80-column window.)

    The /2 and /4 options are obsolete and unlikely to produce useful results
    unless you either have very short LFN names, or you use the /X and/or /Z
    options.

    You're probably comparing a much wider Take Command tab window, that is
    capable of displaying at least two columns of the longest LFN name in the
    directory.

    Try it with the same size window, in the same directory, and you will see
    the same results.

    It seems to me that on FAT32, FAT, and NTFS, using *dir /2 or *dir /4 gives
    filenames only, whether a stand-alone console or part of TCMD. However, all
    my drives support LFN, so it looks like it is doing what the help claims.
