                                   FILES
 
Specifies the number of files that MS-DOS can access at one time. You can
use this command only in your CONFIG.SYS file.
 
Syntax
 
    FILES=x
 
Parameter
 
x
    Specifies the number of files that MS-DOS can access at one time. Valid
    values for x are in the range 8 through 255. The default value is 8.
 
                                      ***

<Syntax> <Examples>
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
                                FILES--Note
 
Although the default setting for the x parameter is 8, some programs require
a larger value. A typical setting is 30.
 
The value you set for FILES may not be the only determining factor in how
many files a program can have open at a time. The design of the program may
limit how many files it can have open.
 
                                      ***

<Syntax> <Notes>
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
                               FILES--Example
 
To specify that MS-DOS can access up to 20 files at one time, add the
following line to your CONFIG.SYS file:
 
    files=20
 
                                      ***
