    e.g. http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=9328, unxutils includes a Win32 build of sed.




    a while back i mentioned to you that i used ndos for its GLOBAL command, which preforms a command on all files and files in the sub dirs.

    you mentioned that you had a similar program that did the same thing?
    do you recall the name and where one could pick it up?

    I have a 16-bit DOS program called sweep.exe, I think it can from a PCMag utility set, which will execute a specific command-line in each sub-directory of the current directory, recursively. I also have a Win32 program called 'each', which I wrote and executes a specified command-line for every file in the current directory, but it doesn't recurse. So I don't think either of these program do what GLOBAL does, but perhaps a combination of the 2 would (with 16-bit limitations). Probably not what you're looking for.

    Sounds like he's looking for a Windows version of the unix find utility... which is probably included with that unix utilities bundle on sourceforge.

    ah, found sweep.exe and also found a program called global.exe which does the same thing with a few more features.

    hate to give ndos.com the boot, there's a lot of useful things it can do.

    Sometimes i forget to do cmd /c for the functions and filenames get
    truncated, though.

    never liked 4nt.

    me?

    didnt think that version of find was for executing commands on files in recursive dirs\

    i have several copycat unix utils and my copy of find doesnt do that.
