Hi, guys...I'm working on a small project that would allow us to
check that the documentation files we give to release engineering to
include on the CD made it into each build.

I'd like to create a log of every file that we submit and compare it
against their build. To do this, I need to pipe out to a file a
listing of each file name and its DOS file size. The kicker is that I
need to launch the command against a directory, have it crawl the
directory and it's subdirectories, yet pipe it to a list that simply
lists the files as if it was in one directory...I don't want to
include the names of the subdirectories.

I've been away from DOS for too long...anyone point me in the right direction?
