VIEWing multiple files possible?

#1
Hi all,

if I understand it right, view should be able to view multiple files:

VIEW
Purpose: Display the contents of files.

Format: VIEW [/A:[[-|+]rhsadecijopt /A /B /E /FIX /FLAT / GB /H /L /L:n ?LEN:n /O:xx /P /R /S:xx /T /TEXT /VH /W] file ...

file One or more files.

See also LIST.

File Selection

Supports command dialog, attribute switches, extended wildcards, ranges, multiple file names, and include lists.
Code:
>ver /r

TCC  13.00.23   Windows 2008R2 [Version 6.1.7601]
TCC Build 23   Windows 2008R2 Build 7601  Service Pack 1
Registered to xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

>dir /k dhcp*.log
02.05.2011  15:49           5.253  dhcp-errors_Mon.log
29.10.2010  12:08         126.101  dhcp_Fri.log
01.11.2010  07:47          71.584  dhcp_Mon.log
28.10.2010  13:51         139.403  dhcp_Thu.log
           342.341 bytes in 4 files and 0 dirs
     4.130.107.392 bytes free

>view dhcp*.log
view starts with the 1st file in the list,
but HOW do I get view to show me the other ones?
"File next/previous" is grayed out and tab/shift-tab doesn't work either!

Am I too dumb or did I misunderstand something?

regards
frank

It should, but there seems to be something wrong in the latest build. I can
reproduce the problem in the 32-bit Take Command. The 64-bit version seems
to work until the 32-bit version runs, then neither work.

It's out of my pay grade; I've passed it on to Charles (the V developer) to
decipher.

thank you,

build 26 fixed the problem for me. I can now VIEW multiple files with ctrl-pgup/down.

update :

can please someone verify if the search function in VIEW is working?

e.g. my files contains lines with the string "NACK"

>findstr /i nack dhcp_Thu.log
15 10/28/10 07:17:09 NACK 172.23.128.160 <NULL> 001E33E186AF,
15 10/28/10 07:17:09 NACK 172.23.128.160 <NULL> 001E33E186AF,
15 10/28/10 07:17:09 NACK 172.23.128.160 <NULL> 001E33E186AF,
15 10/28/10 10:38:12 NACK 192.168.2.100 <NULL> B482FEECCF32,
15 10/28/10 10:38:12 NACK 192.168.2.100 <NULL> B482FEECCF32,

but "view /s:nack dhcp_Thu.log" positions on the beginning of the file, not on the first hit.
