Hello to everyone !

I'd like to know , can FARR list all files/subdirs in current dir?

this feature known in Total Commander as branch view

for example, I hoped the string d:\run\FindAndRunRobot\*\ can do that, but it only match 1st-depth subdirs

thank you !

there are two issues, the first is if you want a complete listing of the deep recursive contents of the directory, the second is if you want to match a search inside the deep recursive contents of the directory.

the first cannot currently be done, though i could add it.
the second is done already (*at least mostly).

so if you want to find something at any depth under the d:\run branch of the directory tree, you could type:
"d:\run nametofind"

note the SPACE after the d:\run because that is important.

* the only caveat to this is that farr tries to be a little smart and my memory is that it wont go deeper into the subdirectory if it finds matches in the top directory you specify.

many thanks for sintax explaining,

I mean the second issue you'v described,
the purpose is clear : we search one file for launching, not for browsing list of files or managing them
