Index Prev Next


Name

Filenote

Synopsis

FILE/A,COMMENT,ALL/S,QUIET/S

Function

Add a comment to a file or directory.

Filenote allows a recursive scan of all directories adding comments
to each file/directory it finds that matches the file pattern
specified.

Inputs

FILE    - Always has to be specified. Can be either a filename with
          a full path or a file pattern that is to be matched.

COMMENT - The string that is to be added as a comment to the
          file(s)/dir(s) specified. If no comment is specified, any
          existing comment is deleted.

          To provide a comment that has embedded quotation marks,
          precede each quote with an asterisk.

            i.e. Filenote FILE=RAM:test.txt COMMENT=*"hello*"

ALL     - Boolean switch. If specified, Filenote scans the directories
          that match the pattern specified, recursively.

QUIET   - Boolean switch. If specified, no diagnostic text will be
          displayed to stdout.

Result

Standard DOS return codes.

Example

Filenote ram: hello all

    Recurses through each directory in RAM: adding "hello" as a
    filenote to each file/directory.

Notes

Output from AROS' Filenote is more neat and structured than the
standard Filenote command.

Does not yet support multi-assigns.
