It can be difficult to identify a files purpose and content with just the filename, especially when the file is old or shared between users.

Files and subdirectories are displayed with file sizes, dates, and a user description. DIRlist can navigate from directory to directory propagating subdirectory descriptions in related directories. DIRlist saves the descriptions in an HTML file of each directory accessed by DIRlist. - Help identify files and directories shared by other users - Print, display, and browse directory listings with file descriptions - Used for project documentation, instruction manuals, and directory contents - Document the files and directories to promote identification - Propagates related descriptions by navigating between directories
