FM/2 Utils FM/2 Utils

All the .EXE utilities provide help if you run them with /? as an
argument (hint: arguments shown in brackets [] are optional, arguments
shown in braces <> are required). The .CMD utilities may be directly
inspected using a text editor and are commented as to use and function.

It's recommended that you install these utilities into a directory on
your PATH or, if you already have FM/2 installed, into a UTILS subdirectory
off of your FM/2 installation directory. This will allow FM/2 to find
and use these utilities. (If you are not familiar with the term "PATH",
type HELP PATH at a command prompt.)

These utilities are standalone, meaning that one doesn't rely on
another. You can therefore delete any you don't want to keep around
without affecting the operation of any of the others.

If you like the FM/2 Utilities package, you'll love FM/2. File
Manager/2 (FM/2) is a freeware OS/2 (warp)/ eCS PM 32-bit
file/directory/archive maintenance utility (a sort of super-Drives
object, something midway between the Drives objects and a more
traditional file manager) with plenty of bells, whistles and utilities,
drag and drop, context menus, toolbars and accelerator keys. FM/2 won a
1995 OS/2 Magazine Editor's Choice award -- the only file management
software to do so. If you know how to use OS/2, you already know how to
use most of FM/2. You can easily glean the rest from the extensive
online help. FM/2 is available from http://hobbes.nmsu.edu/ or
ftp://ftp.netlabs.org (initially in /incoming/fm2 moving to /pub/fm2)


Following is a very brief description of each program in the package:

BEEP.EXE
Makes a beep noise.

CRC.EXE
Calculates and prints the CRC of a file or files.

CVT4OS2.CMD
Converts 4DOS/4OS2 non-standard DESCRIPT.ION files to WPS-standard
.SUBJECT EAs (see comments in program).

CVTFBBS.CMD
Converts FILES.BBS file comments to WPS-standard .SUBJECT EAs (see
comments in program).

DELTREE.EXE
Deletes a directory and all its subdirectories and files.

DRVRLIST.EXE
Lists all mounted drivers. Use /w switch for a "wide" listing.

DRVTYPES.EXE
Lists all drives with information on their types.

DSTART.EXE
A START command that will work from DOS VDMs (penalty box).

EA.EXE
An extended attribute manipulation program. Can be used to zap all
the EAs from REXX .CMD files.

EJECT.EXE
Eject media from a removable drive. Notes: when EJECT, LOCK or
UNLOCK returns an error code of 31, it usually means that function
is not supported for the requested drive. "The parameter is not
correct" may mean you tried it on a non-existent or fixed drive.
Error 163 is not in the OS/2 message file; it's "uncertain media,"
and usually just repeating the command will "fix" it.

FATOPT.EXE*
An OS/2 FAT optimizer -- defragment, condense freespaces, sort file
and directory names, test sectors in system areas, test (and repair
some damaged) clusters, report on drive usage. If you receive a
"FATOpt can't lock" message from FATOpt, the drive is in use and
FATOpt can't optimize it; try booting from floppies (place
FATOPT.EXE on the floppy together with VIOCALLS.DLL). If you
receive a "FATOpt ran out of memory" error, add RAM and/or set up a
swapfile on a partition other than the one being optimized (type
HELP SWAPPATH at a command line for more info) and/or try the -p
or -q switches. Other errors (uncommon) should be self-explanatory,
if distressing. CHKDSK/F should be run before running FATOpt, and
it's always a good idea to back up before defragging. FATOpt
errorlevel returns for batch files: 0 = no problems, 1 = user
abort, 2 = out of memory, 3 = bad file (run CHKDSK/F, dammit),
4 = can't open drive, 5 = can't lock drive, 6 = can't fix bad
cluster, 7 = insufficient free space on drive, 8 = unknown error,
9 = bad system area, 10 = error during standard file copy.
BACKUP BEFORE OPTIMIZING. REMEMBER THE BEST OPTIMIZATION IS
ACCOMPLISHED BY A BACKUP/DELETE/RESTORE.

FINDPATH.EXE
List a PATH-style environment variable's directories (or LIBPATH),
or find a file or files in those directories. Perhaps useful for
tracking down files that appear in more than one directory on the
PATH or LIBPATH.

FLUSH.EXE
Flush file system caches and buffers (make system quiescent).

FM2PLAY.EXE*
Used by FM/2 to play multimedia files with the "Play Multimedia"
command (requires MMPM/2).

HPFSOPT.EXE*
An HPFS optimizer.

ICONIFY.EXE
"Iconifies" image files, which is to say that it sets the icon
of image files to be miniature versions of the image files. A
PM program, but designed to be run in batch mode from a command
line.

IMAGE.EXE*
Used by FM/2 to quickly display image files (requires MMPM/2).
Request a context menu for several options.

ISTEXT.EXE
Returns ERRORLEVEL 1 if a file appears to be a text (ASCII) file,
0 if not or file is inaccessible.

KILL2.EXE
A timed deletion/touch/list utility.

KILLPID.EXE
Kill processes by PID or title, or list PIDs of running processes.
See also SWITCHTO.EXE.

KEYLOCKS.EXE
Control state of num lock, caps lock, scroll lock. Note: PM
program, but still designed to be run from command line.

LA.EXE
Lists the contents of archive files, extracts files from archives
using one command without you having to know the archive type or
archiver commands (requires ARCHIVER.BB2 datafile to be on your
PATH or DPATH, copy included in the archive, edit to taste/need).

LINES.EXE
Counts lines in text files.

LOCK.EXE
Lock a removable drive.

MAKEOBJ.CMD
Creates WPS objects for filenames -- program objects for programs,
shadows for everything else -- on the desktop.

MKPATH.EXE
Make directories many levels deep with one command.

MOV.EXE
A MOVE command that can move between drives and optionally allows
overwriting.

MSENSIT.EXE
Set sensitivity of mouse.

NO.EXE
Hides file system objects, then runs a command (excludes file system
objects from a command).

NOCAD.EXE
Disables/reenables (toggles) CTRL-ALT-DEL.

OPEN.EXE
Opens a WPS object or website.

PRIORITY.EXE
A launch-with-priority program that lets you set the priority of
other programs when you start them.

PTREE.EXE
Displays the tree of a given path, several options.

QFORMAT.EXE
Quick format floppies by zapping the root and FATs. NOTE: Warp's
FORMAT will do this now, too (/Q switch).

QPLAY.EXE
Quiet play plays multimedia files via MMPM/2 without showing itself
(perhaps useful from batch files).

REBOOT.EXE
Reboots the system as though you'd pressed CTRL-ALT-DEL.

REBOOTP.EXE
Reboots the system as though you'd pressed CTRL-ALT-DEL after
broadcasting a WM_QUIT message to all children of the desktop and
waiting 60 seconds for the applications to save their settings and
quit (note that VIO and DOS applications will pop up their "Are you
sure?" boxes, but you don't have to be there to answer (and
shouldn't be -- use Shutdown instead if you're not automating),
though such apps won't pick up on the hint to shut down). This is a
PM application, but still designed to be run from command line.

REMTAB.EXE
Removes TABs from text files.

RENCASE.EXE
Renames files to the same name but all upper, lower or "mixed" case.

RESET.EXE
Resets a drive.

SAVEDESK.EXE
Saves the Desktop, optionally restarts WPS by killing it and letting
it restart itself.

SCOPY.EXE
Copy new files and/or newer versions of existing files. Primarily
intended for backup and synchronization.

SDIR.CMD
Directory listing that shows .SUBJECT EAs.

SEEHELP.EXE
For systems where VIEW.EXE will not display .HLP files, this lets
you view help files without starting the program to which they
belong.

SMODE.EXE
Set screen modes (columns, rows, resolutions) for VIO/full screen
sessions or reports on available modes.

SNAPSHOT.EXE
Creates a "snapshot" file compatible with PMDMatch.

SR.EXE
Simple search-and-replace command, optional interactive mode.
Intended to be used non-interactively for many files in a single
pass (otherwise a text editor is more suitable).

SRCH.CMD
A search command for OS/2 (finds text in files).

STRIP.EXE
Filter that strips specified strings from input.

SUBJ.CMD
Show and modify .SUBJECT EAs.

STRIPCDS.EXE
A filter that strips ANSI and VT-100 escape codes from stdin and
writes the results to stdout.

SWEEP.CMD
A sweep command for OS/2; performs a command in all subdirectories
of the current directory.

SWITCHTO.EXE
Switch current or a specified process (by PID or partial title) to
the foreground.

TEST.EXE
TEST.CMD
TESTPM.EXE
Repeat all the arguments it receives; useful for debugging command
lines and figuring out what arguments one program receives from
another.

TESTDRV.EXE
Test a drive. Should be run with a drive other than the one being
tested as the default for best results (saves a logfile listing any
bad sectors found to the default directory).

TESTFIND.EXE
Tests an IFS's DosFindFirst/Next implementation for troubleshooting.

TESTHAND.EXE
Reports the number and type of inherited file handles.

TESTRC.EXE
Runs a program and reports its return code (ERRORLEVEL).

the arj file resides, then opens a folder for that directory.

UNIQUE.EXE
Counts the number of lines, words and unique words in a text file,
gives a breakdown of how many times each unique word was used.

UNLOCK.EXE
Unlock a removable drive.

UNLZHER.CMD
Unlzhs any lzh file dropped onto it into the same directory where
the lzh file resides, then opens a folder for that directory.

UNZIPPER.CMD
Unzips any zip file dropped onto it into the same directory where
the zip file resides, then opens a folder for that directory.

WHERE.CMD
A where command for OS/2; finds files on a specified or the default
drive.
