The DOStips column in the September 1985 issue of OCLC Micro addressed some common uses of the DIRectory command in DOS. While training OCLC staff members on the IBM PC, I have found some other handy variations of DIR, including some of the piping and redirection variations. This article lists 19 DIR command variations that I think are probably all the ones you are most likely to use.
