Abstract: The FDIR-Package consists of the programs FDIR (Fast
Directory), SDIR (Sort Directory) and some other files (e.g.,
command files, documentation).  FDIR will create a directory
listing of the accounts existing on any RSTS/E V7 (V8 has not
been tested, but should also work) disk device (for example
RL01/02, RP05).  Directories of DECtapes or magtapes are not
possible.  FDIR reads the directory data directly from the
User-File-Directory (UFD) of each account.
The functions of FDIR are similar to those of $DIRECT, but
you should recognize, that FDIR is about three times faster
than DIRECT and about six times than PIP and has more
features (e.g., date specifiers, matching protection codes,
VT100 options are supported and last but not least, sorting
is available).
SDIR is used to reorder the directory listings produced by
FDIR, PIP or DIRECT.  Sorting is possible by several keys,
for example filename, extension, creation date or position on
disk, in forward or reverse order.
Restrictions: No file attributes supported, directories of magtapes or
DECtapes are not possible.
