multiple directories with F7

Post by *mrbeeye »

Sometimes I need to create couple of directories, for instance:
tmp1 tmp2 tmp3 ... tmp7.

It's quite boring to create them manually one after one.

Is there any way to create them at a time?
I mean something like F7 -> tmp1; tmp2; tmp3; tmp4; tmp5; tmp6; tmp7.

Maybe something like Multi-rename tool will be very helpful.

multiple....

Using MS-DOS commands under Windows XP is little out of practise but obviously it can't be helped.

I thought Christian Ghisler may implement something to solve that.

Creating multiple directories at once (taken from another thread, can't remember which one):

1\..\2\..\3\..\4

will create four directories called 1, 2, 3 and 4. You can use a / instead of a \ as separator as well.

Cool!
You can do much more with this knowledge:
Create a directory: 'c:\LEVEL0\LEVEL1\LEVEL2\LEVEL3\'

Code: Select all

  c:|-LEVEL0
       |- LEVEL1
            |- LEVEL2
                 |-LEVEL3
and go into this directory'LEVEL3'.
then press [F7] and write "LEVEL4\..\..\LEVEL3a\..\LEVEL3b\..\..\LEVEL2a\..\..\LEVEL1a\..\LEVEL1b\..\..\LEVEL0a\LEVEL.1\..\LEVEL.2"
and press enter. You create a structure like this

Code: Select all

 c:|-level0
   |  |- LEVELl1
   |  |   |- LEVEL2
   |  |   |  |-LEVEL3
   |  |   |  |  |-LEVEL4
   |  |   |  |-LEVEL3a
   |  |   |  |-LEVEL3b
   |  |   |- LEVEL2a
   |  |-LEVEL1a   
   |  |-LEVEL1b
   |-LEVEL0a
       |-LEVEL.1
       |-LEVEL.2
Don't know what it is good for but you can do :P

And with command [F7] "..\D\..\E\..\F" while being in "C:\" you can create some additional hard disks if your C drive is out of space... So no need to buy additional HDDs anymore! Cool...

Very nice trick! How do you guys find such things? There should be a place where we could collect, sort and maintain tips&tricks like that. What do you think about doing that in WiKi or something similar?

Roman (aka Hacker) hosts a site for hits&tips but I always forget the link. Oh, and I always forget to bookmark it! ;)

Can we have it again Roman? :oops:

Sounds good. Where can I get more information. I've heard about an addon for the Zope management system, but I prefer a php/mysql solution, because Zope is not provided by my webhoster. Is it possible?

I found what I was looking for: http://www.wakkawiki.com/WakkaWiki

Lefteous' idea is really cool! :D But it seems that Sheepdog didn't got it yet completely. Applying Lefteous' idea consequently, Sheepdog's verbose example would simply look like this:

c:\LEVEL0\LEVEL1\LEVEL2\LEVEL3\LEVEL4\..\..\LEVEL3a\..\LEVEL3b\..\..\LEVEL2a\..\..\LEVEL1a\..\LEVEL1b\..\..\LEVEL0a\LEVEL.1\..\LEVEL.2
