The APPEND Command

The APPEND Command.

Description:

Allows programs to open data files in specified directories as if they were in the current directory.

Command Syntax:

APPEND [[drive:]path[;...]] [/X[:ON | :OFF]] [/PATH:ON | /PATH:OFF] [/E]
APPEND ;

Explanation of Syntax:

[drive:]path specifies a drive and directory to append.
[/X:ON] applies appended directories to file searches and application execution.
[/X:OFF] applies appended directories only to requests to open files. [/X:OFF] is the default setting.
[/PATH:ON] applies appended directories to file requests that already specify a path. [/PATH:ON] is the default setting.
[/PATH:OFF] turns off the effect of /PATH:ON.
[/E] stores a copy of the appended directory list in an environment variable named APPEND. [/E] may be used only the first time you use APPEND after starting your system.
