I think I may have found a problem with DOS listings.
I don't know if this has been posted before, and it is possible that it is
fixed in a new version.
Because I use C++ Builder it is a hassle to recompile the libraries, so I
probably have an older version.
Anyway, I think I have found that if the byte size of all files in a folder
are greater than 9 digits, it does not find any files.
My listing looks like:  ( 2 lines only )

09-08-05  10:22AM            628551680 Test.txt
09-08-05  10:23AM            628623360 Test2.txt

The parser does not create a list out of this.
If I remove one digit from the size, then try again, it works.  Or if I put
another file in there of a size smaller than 9 digits, it works.
Is this a known issue?  Has it been fixed and I just need to upgrade?

Thanks,
Jeff Easton
