  1. dir Difficulties


    I am seeking to sort files with dir.

    Creation date and time is my most primary interest.

    This has been my primary guide.
    MS-DOS dir command help

    I have tried a number of these commands in Powershell and Admin Powershell

    The simple one element wild card ones work okay. Ex
    dir *.exe

    All the others seem to use methods and techniques beyond my current skill level.

    First. I do not understand this statement.
    Options listed below may be preset in the DIRCMD environment variable. To override preset options, prefix any switch with - (hyphen), for example, "/-W".
    A description and example might help,


    The slash operator returns errors that I do not know how to fix. Ex
    PS G:\> dir /b
    dir : Cannot find path 'G:\b' because it does not exist.

    Why does PS reverse the direction of the slash?

    Any guidance, clearer examples,references,tutorials...will be appreciated.

    Thanks


    :)

    Thinking DIR-655.

    So I have a few nodes that I need traffic routed to in my home. This includes wireless, USB(convenient), and of course hard wire routed main station.

    I am running a broadband connection neighborhood coaxial to a Motorola DOCSIS 3.0 modem.

    To the point of the topic.

    I need some suggestions.
    Needs:
    1GB ports x4 (10/100/1000)
    USB
    802.11b/g/"n draft"
    2 channels for streaming HD
    -basically my needs are standard and I want a solid option.

    Does not have to have playable firmware. Just legit.

    I was looking at the D-Link DIR-655

    Any Cisco/Linksys or other suggestions?

    DIR list to text list folders but not what is in them.


    In a Command Prompt window type dir /? [note the space] to get a list of switches you can use. I frequently use dir /o/s>dir.txt to get an Organized list of files and subFolders redirected to a dir.txt file in that Folder. Leave off the >dir.txt is only wanting a list on the screen but could use /p to pause it a screenful at a time.

    DIR list to text list folders but not what is in them.


    Is there a way with DIR command line via CMD or power shell to list the contents of a directory but exclude the contents of the folders and generate a a bare list(location name only). Just list the files and folders?
