JSI Tip 4845. XXCOPY personal use freeware is a logical extension of XCOPY.

XXCOPY is a logical extension of XCOPY. I quote the readme:



Release Version 2.80.2 (2002-01-06) Thank you for your interest in the XXCOPY freeware package. * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * X X C O P Y X C O P Y C O P Y O P Y P Y Y Simply, a Logical Extension to XCOPY. XXCOPY is simply a logical extension to XCOPY. It remains faithfully compatible with XCOPY in the invocation syntax, yet, adds many innovative features to be a very serious utility for anyone who feels comfortable in managing files in command line mode (DOS Box). XXCOPY has grown to be not just a file copy program but also a file removal, search and list utility. Its short name preserving capability makes it ideal to clone a system disk which can be made bootable. XXCOPY runs under Windows 95/98/NT/2000/XP and comes with a 16-bit version XXCOPY16 which allows copying files in DOS envrionment using short name only (to be later expanded to long name). You may also use it for synchronizing systems. In short, it is an industrial strenth utility for system administrators. * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * This package contains two executable files: README.TXT ; this file INSTALL.BAT ; run this batch program without an argument UIXXCOPY.BAT ; uninstall the XXCOPY*.EXE files XXCOPY.EXE ; 32-bit Win 95/98/ME/NT/2000/XP compatible program XXPBAR.EXE ; The Progress Bar display module XXCOPY16.EXE ; a 16-bit DOS program PAD_FILE.XML ; PAD (Portable Application Description) file ----------------------------------------------------------------- NOTE: If you are a licensee of the XXCOPY PRO Edition, and are interested in updating your copy of XXCOPY with the newer version, this package is probably not for you. This package contains the XXCOPY Freeware which is not the same thing as the XXCOPY-PRO Edition even with the presense of the license (XXCOPY.LIC) file. You must obtain your update package directly from XXCOPY's home page. If you have any question, please contact Pixelab for details. ----------------------------------------------------------------- To install the XXCOPY Freeware package, make current the temporary directory where the above files are stored; for example, CD c:\temp Then, run the INSTALL.BAT program without any argument INSTALL The batch program is equivalent to "XXCOPY /INSTALL" but it will generate a few extra help text at the completion of the "XXCOPY /INSTALL" operation. As a self-sufficient program, the XXCOPY.EXE (or XXCOPY16.EXE) file can be placed (and executed) at any directory, or even renamed to other name when appropriate without adverse effect. In most circumstances, it is best to keep it in a directory which is in the "PATH=" Environment variable so that the program is readily available whatever the current directory setting is at any give time. Documentations for the programs are available in three ways. 1. Short command switch summary. Run XXCOPY/XXCOPY16 with the /? switch. Example: xxcopy /? 2. Full command switch display. Run XXCOPY/XXCOPY16 with the /help switch. Since the output is more than one page, it is best you view one page at a time with "| MORE" Example: xxcopy /help | more xxcopy /helpa | more (for alphabetic listing) 3. Web-based documentation (The most complete of the three). Visit the following web site: http://www.xxcopy.com And look for documentation and update information. --------------------------------------------------------------------- ================================================
