/B Switch Does Not Work Together with All DIR Commands


When you use the dir command at a command prompt, you can use multiple switches at once. However, some switches are ignored when you use the /b switch. The /b switch uses "bare" format.


The /b switch displays files in a bare format with no heading information or summary. Using the /b switch in the same command with the following switches causes only the /b switch information to be displayed:



This behavior is by design.

More Information

The dir command has the following syntax:

DIR [drive:][path][filename] [/A[[:]attributes]][/B][/C][/D][/L][/N]
