C:\ZTREE\ZTW.EXE /M /Y A B "M:\X Y" "AA BB.TXT*" /K,ENTER,f,ENTER
----1---- --2----- -----3------ ------4---------

it is a novice way that i hope to write a command line to handle to all things.
i will try to seperate 2 cases; drive and the rest of dir and file.
because if i dont put in something like "*" then the 4th argument goes to the 3rd argument position then it ruins things. the same thing goes to the quotation marks.
if i dont use them, it cant read names with spaces. if i use quotations then they cant handle root drives and also cause an acceptible minor problem in directory names.



you asked me about something about powershell a while ago
my ans is.. i cant use or never use powershell..... not in my life (i dont have much left). i may learn one or two things about it over the shoulders but not more. it is for the next generation.
it is nearly a miracle for me to get to know DOS batch commands this far since XT computers, i am a physicist, i only solve numerical math problems. it is kind of fun to talk about DOS commands sometimes, because they have so many operators in my eyes.
