"Smart Edit" means that FoxFiler determines which is the best mode to display a file. Rather than the old FILER which brings DBFs up as a text file with all those ASCII characters.

"Smart Copy/Move" means that if the destination file name, size, date and time are the same, skip it! This saves a lot of time, especially when working with many or big files. A careful name/size/date/time comparison is made before moving or copying each file.

This program allows you to perform most of the functions of FoxPro's built in Filer - only finer! Probably the real reason Microsoft did not bother to include a Filer in VPF Version 5.0 was that they saw this and knew it was much better! : )

This program also has many features the old Filer does not. For example, it also recognizes PKZIP files and allows you to compress and uncompress them on the fly.

This Filer is aware of the various files that FoxPro has. It will bring DBF's in to Browse mode, instead of editing them like a text file, which could be dangerous to data. It also recognizes projects, screen, reports and menus.

It also supports long file names in Mac & Windows 95/NT and shows more files at a glance, in a sizeable window, allowing you to switch quickly between two directories.

Tip for convenient access: ON KEY LABEL F4 DO FILER.PRG

You can also include COMMAND=DO FILER as a startup program in Config.fpw and it will allow you to choose your working directory, start programs, or work on FoxPro files.

Thank you for using the Filer. Suggestions are welcome.
