    XXCOPY TECHNICAL BULLETIN #023

    From:    Kan Yabumoto           tech@xxcopy.com
    To:      XXCOPY user
    Subject: The enhanced features of XXCOPY at a glance
    Date:    2000-12-06
    ===============================================================================
    
    Here are some of XXCOPY's enhanced features over Microsoft's XCOPY.
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     1. "Wild-Wildcard" Source Specifier
    
        XXCOPY c:\windows\*\*cache*\*\*.jpg  c:\myimages\
    
        Note the number and the positions of asterisks in the source.
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     2. Exclusion switch (file template)
    
        XXCOPY c:\*\*cache*\*  \dst\   /X*.gif /X*.bmp
    
        /X allows you to exclude files that match the template.
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     3. Exclusion switch (directory template)
    
        XXCOPY c:\  \dst\ /S  /Xtemp*\*\*.gif /X*\internet\*\*.mp3
    
        /X allows you to specify a group of directories and/or files
        that match quite a variety of directory/file patterns.
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     4. Inclusion switch (file template only)
    
        XXCOPY c:\*.img   \dst  /S /IN*.bmp /IN*.gif /IN*.bmp
    
        /IN allows you to specify an "include" filespec (alternate
        filename pattern).
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     5. Limit by file size
    
        XXCOPY c:\   d:\backup\  /S /SZ:-10000000
    
        This example copyies files whose size is 10MB or less.
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     6. Select files by age
    
        XXCOPY c:\   d:\backup\  /S /DA#5
    
        This command copies files that were made within 5 days
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     7. Select files by year/month/date
    
        XXCOPY c:\   d:\backup\  /S  /DA:2000-10
    
        This command copies files that were made in October, 2000 or later.
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     8. Select the range of file date
    
        XXCOPY c:\   d:\backup\  /S  /DA:1999-1-1  /DB:1999-6-30
    
        The file range of Date betwen Jan 1 and Jun 30 of 1999.
        /DA (On-or-After) and /DB (On-or-Before) bracket the date range.
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     9. Alternative to DELTREE
    
        XXCOPY "c:\My Documents\*\*.mp3" /RMDIR /DB:1999-12-31
    
        XXCOPY is not just for file copy.  The rich set of file selection
        switches can be applied to file deletion as well.
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    10. Complex file search for a listing of custom output format.
    
        XXCOPY c:\windows\*\*cache*\*\my*\*\*.jpg  /LZDTL
    
        The /L switch offers a search and list capability with format control.
        This example lists Z(file size), D(ate), T(ime), and L(ongname).
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    This list gives you only ten relatively straightforward switches to
    illustrate the power of XXCOPY.  The over 200 enhanced switches in
    XXCOPY can be combined for millions of combinations to fit your
    needs.  For a complete list of switches, see XXTB #01.
