Dos Question

What is the command to write all of the file names in a directory to a text file?

I thought it was:

C:\ dir /w filename.txt

It's giving me a file not found error.

Edit: nevermind I forgot the '>' thingy

Edit: Why wouldn't you just delete the post when you found the answer? Is it because you want everyone to know how l33+ you are, because you are using DOS? :p

No, I'm hoping that someone will tell me of a windows app so that I don't have to navigate through dos to do this. The path is:

J:\Operation Planning\Forests\English River\Annual Planning\AWS_Annual Work Schedules\Main\2006_07\Production Documentation\Final AWS Submission\Maps\Harvest

Is there a windows app that works like explorer but lets you use dos-like wild cards for filtering the files returned?

Would be awfully handy to be able to goto "My Documents" and only list like, *.doc and only get my doc files, and filter out the zillion other file types in there that I have right now.

damn, the normal 'file open' dialog does this perfectly yet the explorer craps out when I try.

just a little tiny textbox in the address bar.

Or hell, even support it right within the address bar

c:\somedirectory\*.ext

I'd love that
