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
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.
Standard DOS return codes.
Filenote ram: hello all
Recurses through each directory in RAM: adding "hello" as a
filenote to each file/directory.
Output from AROS' Filenote is more neat and structured than the
standard Filenote command.
Does not yet support multi-assigns.
