DOS Commands You Should Know: FIND

Recently, I stumbled upon a problem in my new mode choice and distribution code - I was setting unavailable modes to -9999 to ensure that there was no chance of the model to choose an unavailable mode.  I found later that using that value was a bit extreme and I should be using something like -15 (and the difference causes wild logsum values).

After changing these values in 10 scripts, I wanted to ensure that ALL were changed so I didn't end up running them and finding that I had to wait another 15 minutes after finding an error (or worse, not immediately finding the error!).

So, I used the FIND command in DOS.

All of my distribution files begin with 25 and end with .S, so I used:

find "=-9999" 25*.S"

Missed a few in these files.  The filename is listed there so I can go to it and fix it.

Missed a bunch in this file.  This is why I checked :-)
