The world has lost one of the great shareware programmers. :(

ZBLIST may not yet be at the stage of LIST 9.6y or List Enhanced (not
sure about the last version) but it is a native Windows program. It's
still rough, but the author, another IBM mainframe programmer like Vern,
will work on it provided he gets more feedback.

The beta is available at http://www.bizer.com/zblist/

If you decide to download the program, give the guy some feedback, and
at some stage it may become a worthy replacement for LIST and LIST
Enhanced. (I still love and use LIST, but with greater directory depths
and more files per directory, its limitations are beginning to become
more obvious)
