Command Line

FlexHEX command line may include file names and switches. A switch starts with either / (slash) or - (hyphen) character.

File Type Switches

  /file  – open the subsequent file(s) as standard file system object(s).
  /ole   – open the subsequent file(s) as OLE compound file(s).

If no switch is specified, /file is assumed.

Example:

  FlexHEX a.dat /OLE b.doc /FILE c.ext

opens files a.dat and c.ext as raw unstructured files, and b.doc as a compound file.

Access Mode Switches

  /ro   – open the subsequent file(s) for read-only access.
  /rw – open the subsequent file(s) for read/write access.

If no switch is specified, /rw is assumed.

Example:

  FlexHEX a.dat /RO b.dat /RW c.dat

opens a.dat and c.dat for reading and writing, and b.dat for reading only.

Drive Switches

  /dX   – open logical device X, where X is a latin letter A to Z.
  /pN   – open physical drive N where N is a digit 0 to 9.

The drives will be opened for read/write or read-only access depending of the active /rw or /ro switch.

Example:

  FlexHEX /p1 /ro /de

opens physical drive 1 for reading and writing, and logical drive E: for reading.
