    explorer commands

    I'm not sure that this is the right board to post in but it's windows so i thought i'd ask here.

    i was wondering if there is a command in internet explorer (or any other browser for that matter) that allows you to view the directory listing of a website rather than the index page, kinda like the way the "view-source:" command displays a site's source code.

    thanks in advance for any help i might get.

    The webmaster of the site can set up his server to allow that. If he hasn't I can't think of a way to get it, you couldn't with mine.

    There are a couple of ways for the webmaster to allow this too. In the webserver there will be an option to all directory listings if a default.htm type file isn't present. Also, the webmaster could simply setup a script to list the directory contents.

    Either way, the user only gets to see what the webmaster wants (providing they've done their job properly).
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]
