append

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

Syntax

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

Options

  [drive:]path[;...]
  Drive and directory to append.

  /X[:ON]
  Extends APPEND to searches and command execution.

  /X:OFF
  Applies APPEND only to requests to open files.  This is the default
  setting.

  /PATH:ON
  Searches appended directories for file requests that already include a
  path.  This is the default setting.

  /PATH:OFF
  Switches off /PATH:ON.

  /E
  Stores the appended directory list in the environment.  /E may be used
  only in the first invocation of APPEND. You can not include any paths on
  the same command line as /E.

Notes

  Do not use APPEND with Windows or 32 bit extenders.

  APPEND installs itself as an internal command after its first execution.
  Second and successive invocations MUST exclude file path and extension.
