  • Printing Program Names

    I would like to know if there is a way to print out the titles of the programs after I save them. What I mean is, when I write a new program I give it a name. I would like to print all the program names I have in PCdmis. Could this be posible?
    Thanks ahead of time.

    also Save each program is a folder called master list, you could arrange them by name. But also save it in real folder

      I will start doing something like that, but for now I need to print what I have. I would be alot easier to hit print than to write each one down.

        Well, you COULD open a DOS COMMAND PROMPT window, go to the directory where you have the programs stored, type in DIR >> LIST and hit enter (yes that is 2 > arrows). Then you can either type in EDIT LIST to openthe file, then print it, or you can do it the 'windows' way and click on the file in the folder window and open it with WORDPAD and print it. To get ABSOLUTELY every Pcdmis PRG file you can do this from the root directory (c:\ for most of you) still using the DOS COMMAND PROMPT window: Type in "DIR C:\*.prg /s >> list" and this will give you the same file (list) with EVERY PROGRAM on the drive that ends with the PRG extension, all sorted by location (directory or folder) and you can open that with WORDPAD.

        There are lots of things you can do with DOS that just don't seem to be available with Windoze.

            Well, once you open the DOS COMMAND PROMPT, it should look like the attachment. If so, type in the following:

            DIR C:\*.PRG /s >> C:\LIST.TXT

            this is the same line of code, but I have put a ~ everyplace tha should have a space

            DIR~C:\*.PRG~/s~>>~C:\LIST.TXT

            Maybe you weren't getting the spaces correct. This should create the file LIST.TXT in the main drive folder. Give this a try. If not, post again and I will send you something that should work.

                    Batch File

                    This batch file will find ALL the files that end with PRG on your C drive of the computer. It will save the list in a file called LIST.TXT in the main directory (folder) of you C Drive. It should open without any problems and you should be able to open it with word as well. If your programs are NOT on the C drive of your computer, you can edit the BATCH file. I had to ZIP the file to put it on here, it is VERY small

                    1) Save it to the desktop of your computer
                    2) Right click on it, and select EDIT
                    3) Change the C to what ever drive letter your files are on
                    4) save it
                    5) double click on it

                          YEP, but you really have to watch out for BATCH files from sources you may or may not know. They are a really simple way to totally mess up a computer. Back in the old days of DOS and w3.1 etc., users really knew what and how to to batch files. Not saying anything against anyone here, but batch files are not part of the main stream anymore. A simple, 1 line batch file, if executed, can erase your entire hard drive. All it takes is this line in a batch file to delete every file (or almost every file) from your hard drive. Forwarned, forearmed!

                          DEL C:\*.* /Q

                          Want to mess someone up?
