Subject: Re: new extension for talkbox directory clip: ".dirname.tbx"

I did not know about the quotes thing.
So I can now write:
ren radio shows.mp3 ".radio shows.mp3"
I thought I new about all there was to know about DOS.

Hi, Glen.
If I may ask, what trouble are you having with the files? I, too,
use Windows and DOS boxes, but am having no difficulty though I will admit
that my attitude has been "create and forget". Could you give specifics of
what you have trouble doing with them? I never have to rename the files, as
I use Brian's script to get them in the first place. Even when I do have to
rename them (when I made them with Dectalk Access 32), and when they
contained spaces, I used quotes in the ren command and it worked fine.
Again, I'm not saying the period should be kept, just that I'm not sure why
removing it is necessary.

So I guess I did not actually make the request below, I more or less just
offered a statement.
But my question is:
Can we use the TBX extension, but drop the period in front?

I hate to ask for another change now, but I sure have had trouble renaming
my files with a . in front of them. Especially since I typically have
spaces in my folders & files. I prefer to not use dashes in my names, I
prefer using files like radio shows.tbx, as even in a DOS box, it will have
trouble with files like this with a period in front.
