NDIR is a full-featured color directory lister with many options:
Supports all standard directory-listing options such as sorted listings,
selecting which data elements are displayed, showing or hiding special
files (system/hidden/read-only), etc.
Support for long filenames under FAT16, FAT32, NTFS
All configuration is handled via a .INI file. The search method used by
NDIR to find the INI file is (1) search in the current directory, then (2)
search in the location where the executable was located. If neither of
these locations contain an INI file, generate a default file in the
directory where the executable was located. Configuration files offer
several advantages over other configuration methods, such as modifying the
executable (which is what NDIR used to do), or storing data in the registry:
Display system/hidden/readonly files with special colors.
- Changing configuration is easy - just edit the file, and the next
time any of the utilities is executed, your changes are there!
- Your custom configuration is never lost when upgrading to a new
version; the INI file is separate from the executables.
- Moving your configuration to another machine simply requires copying
the INI file; try *that* with registry settings!
- You can have custom configurations for special directories. For
example, you might choose two-column or four-column display by
default, but might have a directory with many files in it, where you
prefer the six-column (filename only) display. You can easily
customize individual displays in individual directories by putting
a second INI file in that directory, with different settings; as noted
above, NDIR searches the current directory before searching the
Display either LAST_MODIFIED date/time or FILE_CREATED date/time
(MSDOS 7.00+ only).
Supports up to 200 different file-extension color settings.
Powerful directory-tree display shows sizes of individual directories,
as well as cumulative sizes of all subdirectories. Directory tree can be
sorted by filename or directory size (ascending or descending).
Display disk-drive summary (-i).
