Here is my first public beta of XTREE.VDM.
The macro lets you read in the contents of a directory (file listing created by DIR automatically) - optional with all subdirectories (and that's the important feature for me). Then you can perform some task on that list:
This is the online help available with Shift-F1:
F11 Menu for sorting the file (or use the keys below directly)
Shft-F11 Sort the list by filename
Ctrl-F11 Sort the list by pathname
Alt-F11 Sort the list by date/time
Ctrl-Shft-F11 Sort the list by size
F12 Load the file the cursor is on into VEDIT (and close it again)
Shft-F12 Compare the two files (cursor on first one)
Ctrl-F12 Delete file -or- all files marked as block (caution!)
Alt-F12 Re-read the directory contents and thus rebuild the list
It should work with all Windows versions from 95 up.
But I wasn't able to determine the language automatically. Up to now the macro is able to work with english and german Windows.
English is the default. So you have to modify one line in the macro if your Windows is speaking german (Just at the beginning. It's documented.)
This macro is not intended to be a real XTREE clone! I wrote it for special purposes . Maybe it's helpful for other users too. At least as programming example...
