I know I can use the DIR (disk command, and it will put the data in *CURLIB/DIROUTPUT.DIROUTPUT, but it is a replacement, not an add, so I can only get one directory listing per FTP session.
I don't want to have to end the session, and restart it three times. Any suggestions? Am I missing something?
DIR direct1/*.* > DIROUTPUT.DIROUTPUT
The > symbol redirects the output to the file specified. This will, as you say, replace any data in the file. So, use this for the FIRST directory listing in your session, then for the OTHER two, use :
DIR direct2/*.* >> DIROUTPUT.DIROUTPUT
DIR direct3/*.* >> DIROUTPUT.DIROUTPUT
Using the > symbol twice means 'append the data to the file'.
