I hate when I forget to change the subject line.

Instead of , or in addition to sdir and sdrive, could we include my sdc command? It does everything sdrive and sdir do, and then some.


Help entry

Usage: sdc [0|1] [-|SDC command]

The 0 or 1 parameter is optional and defaults to 0.
It indicates the SDC device number.

The SDC commands are string formated as follows:

"-"           - list mounted images
"M:filename"  - mount an image
"N:filename"  - create an image
"D:dirname"   - change directory
"L:dirname"   - print directory
"K:dirname"   - make a directory
"X:name"      - delete a file or directory

If no letter and colon are entered, L: is added to list a directory.

The SDC hardware also supports a Rename command (R:), however this command is
NOT supported by this program at this time.
