filespec[,...] Specifies one or more files to be listed. The syntax of a file specification determines which files will be listed, as follows: o If you do not enter a file specification, the DIRECTORY command lists all versions of the files in the current default directory. o If you specify only a device name, the DIRECTORY command uses your default directory specification. o Whenever the file specification does not include a file name, a file type, and a version number, all versions of all files in the specified directory are listed. o If a file specification contains a file name or a file type, or both, and no version number, the DIRECTORY command lists all versions. o If a file specification contains only a file name, the DIRECTORY command lists all files in the current default directory with that file name, regardless of file type and version number. o If a file specification contains only a file type, the DIRECTORY command lists all files in the current default directory with that file type, regardless of file name and version number. The asterisk (*) and the percent sign (%) wildcard characters can be used in the directory specification, file name, file type, or version number fields of a file specification to list all files that satisfy the components you specify. If you specify more than one file, separate the file specifications with either commas (,) or plus signs (+). directory-spec Specifies the standard DECnet remote file specification. Use a quoted file string to preserve the case (for case sensitive systems such as UNIX) and to identify a foreign device/directory specification. See the /FTP qualifier for more information.
