Dmuse: File manager

From CCARH Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The resident file manager for Dmuse will appear if you press F4. Below is an example of what the file manager looks like. In this example, the command "l" has just been executed to list the files/directories in the current directory (c:/usr/local/apps/musedata/baroque/bach/bg/keybd/wtc_ii). If you then wanted to go into the 0881 directory, you would type 12 and then Enter.


1 File manager commands

Command Description
l List files/subdirectories within the current directory in short format. The list will consists of two columns of alphabetically-sorted entries. Each entry contains three components: (1) an enumeration, (2) an abbreviated filename (up to eight characters from the start of the filename, plus up to three characters of the file extension), and (3) the size of the file in bytes or megabytes.
ldu List files in short format, as with "l", but add disk usage line which reports the total number of bytes contained within files found in the current directory.
ll List files/subdirectories in long format. There will be a single column of entries, with three components to each entry: (1) an enumeration, (2) the complete filename (not abbreviated), and (3) the size of the file in bytes or megabytes.
lldu List files in long format with disk usage message.
ls Unix-style directory listing: a single column of entires, with four elements per entry: (1) the size of the file in bytes or megabytes, (2) the day on which the entry was created/modified, (3) the time of date of the creation/modification, and (4) the unabbreviated file/subdirectory name.
Without an argument, each of the above commands lists the current directory. If a directory name is given as an argument after the command name, it is the directory to list. The special argument "." is the current directory (default), and ".." is the parent directory.
<number> Either change to specified sub-directory, or load specified file, where <number> is the enumeration number printed immediately to the left of the file/directory name in the l/ll/ldu/lldu command results.
b "back": go to the parent directory, for example if the current directory is /usr/local/dmuse, then after executing the command "b", the current directory will be /usr/local.
c <dir> Change to the specified directory (the name of a subdirectory, not an enumeration number).
ad <dir name> add sub-directory or directory to THE_DUMP
del <file/dir> delete file or directory to THE_DUMP
ddel <file/dir> delete file or directory (all contents lost)
ren <file/dir> <new name> rename file or dir to new name
copy <file/dir> <new name> copy file or dir to new name
move <file/dir> move file or dir to new directory
smove <file/dir> save and move file or dir to new dir
