Dirsort v1.1 (c) 1993-95 by Christoph Zwerschke

About Dirsort
Dirsort is designed to sort the order of files in directories, this is 
particularly useful for sorting Auto folder programs because the sort 
order is the order programs are executed.

Dirsort runs as either a program or desktop accessory and accepts 
command lines including a directory path.
Dirsort is also useful for sorting the order of CPX and desktop 

To install Dirsort as an accessory under Single TOS rename DIRSORT.PRG 
to DIRSORT.ACC and place the program in the root directory in the root 
of your boot drive/partition.
Dirsort runs like any other program from the desktop and requires no no 
configuration files.

Using Dirsort
The 'Read' button reads the directory which is by default set to 
C:\AUTO. To re-order files simply Drag&Drop them into any desired 
sequence using the mouse then select the 'Write' button to save the 
files in the new order.
A disk cache noticablably speeds up this operation. To exit Dirsort 
select the 'Quit' button.
