Abstract: The TIDY DIRECTORY PROGRAM (TDP) is a screen-based utility
that helps you to keep your directory tidy.  TDP shows you
summary information about your files, calling attention to
those that exist in multiple versions, and provides
single-key-stroke purging and deleting capability.  You can
also examine the contents of any file before deciding to
purge or delete it.  All these functions are available from
within TDP, and you never have to use PIP, TYPE, DELETE,
TDP presents summaries grouped by file type, so you are
always aware of the file groups in your directory.  At the
author's installation every user who uses TDP has invariably
found (and deleted), groups of files whose existence they
would not have otherwise known.  This is particularly true
of active users who always examine directories by selective
Because TDP exploits VT100 video features and the
applications key-pad, the file directory is never more than
a few key strokes away from a file-contents display, and
PURGING and DELETING tools.  This makes it a particularly
effective and fast way of hacking away the dead wood from
your directory.
Restrictions: The RSX operating system must be sysgened with the
device independent cursor
positioning option.
