Subject: Re: playlist using dos dir command

Re: playlist using dos dir command

dir /?

   /O List by files in sorted order.
   sortorder N By name (alphabetic) S By size (smallest first)
                E By extension (alphabetic) D By date/time (oldest first)
                G Group directories first - Prefix to reverse order

yup, it seems you can sort it in every thinkable way :-)
(unlike the windows 'arrange' function which doesn't show 'last modified'
when trying it in a folder with too much mp3's, just only artist, genre,
etc...)
For removing the drive letters you can create a macro in Your Favorite
Texteditor (mine is Crimson Editor right now)
