VIEWING TEXT FILES [V]

If you want to view a text file you can set up DM to run your favorite VIEW program on a selected file. DM has been set up to run the DOS VIEW program as the default. The VIEW program must be installed in the same directory as DM or its path must be specified during the setup routine. To change the default and set up your VIEW program, choose X (Extra Functions) and then choose V (Set VIEW Program). The message "Input the Command for your favorite VIEW program" will appear. Type in the name of your program, (and its path, if necessary), same as if were being executed from DOS. (Examples: LIST.COM or C:\UTILITY\LIST.COM).

To view a file, position the pointer next to a text or document file and press "V". Program files (those with .COM, .EXE or .BAT extensions), database files and spreadsheet data files will probably not be unrecognizable. You may not revise text using View.
