To run this utility you will need Java version 1.5 or later installed on your computer.

Launch DirView from the command line using the following syntax:
java -jar dirview.jar [-x] [-s] [-?] <directory> [<xsl name>] [<report name>]
The only mandatory argument is the directory that you wish to run the report against, for example:
java -jar dirview.jar c:\videofiles
this will generate a plain, text-only listing of all the files in the c:\videofiles directory, and in all of its sub-directories.
You may optionally specify the name of the XSL stylesheet that should be used to generate the report as the second argument (plainlist is used by default) - the stylesheets are stored in the xsl directory. When specifying a stylesheet just use the name of the xsl file without the .xsl extension, for example:
java -jar dirview.jar c:\videofiles plaintable
this will generate a basic HTML report using the plaintable.xsl stylesheet.
By default the report generated by DirView will be called report.html however you may specify an alternative name as the third argument, for example:
java -jar dirview.jar c:\videofiles plaintable videofiles.html
will write out the report to a file called videofiles.html.
Normally the XML data used to generate the report is not written out to a file, however if you need to see this data you can tell DirView to dump the XML to a file by using the optional -x command-line argument, for example:
java -jar dirview.jar -x c:\videofiles
will write the XML data to a file (this file is always called report.xml).
During normal operation DirView will produce status and progress information as it runs, to supress the output of this information use the -s command-line argument, for example:
java -jar dirview.jar -s c:\videofiles
To display a brief summary of the command-line syntax for invoking DirView, use the -? command-line argument, for example:
java -jar dirview.jar -?
