Thank you to all who are trying to help!
If you read the "subject" of my initial post, you should realize that I already got what I want with the "DIR" in a DOSBOX (of course)
I started the thread just to express my feel of missing power in today's O/S (when task orientated matters are involved)
In the DOS day, things like DIR and RENAME are very easy and to get their function extended, one just need to add few more parameters. They are just commands of the DOS (not even a stand-alone utility). But look at Windows utility nowaday, we need a "Multi-Rename" tool just to "rename" easily... If it is not through Rjbull's recommendation (the LS) I don't even know where to get a Windows utility that can do the DIR thing (as in the title).
I am not saying the trick played by D.Opus and xPlorer2 are bad one, they are simply shell to DOS function and is DOS dependent. In a way, new guys who are born after the DOS day, do you want them to learn DOS again just to be able to do the DIR thing?
