What PC based application does allow this from inside the ap? I've
been working on pc's in various types of aps for 6 years, always had
to go to dos or the file mgr to do file management.

As much as I like Borland, I have yet to be able to find all the
answers to my questions thru their manuals - or any manuals for aps
in general. I've yet to see a user's manual that is complete and
comprehensive with the info you need.
