FMOS2 (FILEMAN) v. 1.15 (16/12/1997) Readme/What's new
--- Revision history: --------------------------------------------- 12-16-97 - 1.15 - Enhancements - Default startup behavior is 'directory', was 'tree'. This can be changed with 'startup t' in your profile or '/t' on the command line. - Bug Fixes - 'Newdir'ing to a directory, when the bannered line would be next to last caused the display to be incorrect. - PFKey ops (e.g. copy, erase, etc.) didn't have correct 'marking' behavior (e.g. same as from 'menu'). - Create/Erase directories of form '.xxx' or '' failed. - Fix for 'create directories' broke copy to '..\dir'.  local copy
