    PARMS Files Functionality

    I am doing a write-up on the PARMS files - how they interact with the scripts and how they can be modified to customize your output (97 & 98 text files primarily).

    I need a few of you to run these commands, please & post the output:

    Run TREE from elevated Admin cmd -

    Code:
    tree "%userprofile%\_jcgriff2_\dbug\__jcgriff2_parms__" /f /a >0 & start notepad 0
    Run DIR from elevated Admin cmd -

    Code:
    dir "%userprofile%\_jcgriff2_\dbug\__jcgriff2_parms__"  /a/s/o:n  >1  & start notepad 1
    Thanks. . .

    John

    Not to mention all the copies I have which pre-release versions of the program messed up, by, for example, mixing up file names and file contents and writing the content of one parm file under the name of another, ended up with Chinese characters when I messed up the encoding, the creation of files with odd names ad infinitum etc. etc. There are some truly messed up directory structures there too! lol.

    That was caused by an encoding problem also. It was fixed ages ago. I think I might have forgotten to tell you that you can delete them

    If you are interested, it was part of the dump counter. With the wrong name. And in the wrong place. And the dump count was broken due to another bug at that time also, so the content was also wrong! Fail.
