Searching for unlocked files

Just though that this would be a good new feture, and wanted to get other peoples option. I use Merant and some times I unlocked a file without asking Merant nicely and find my self with filews that are unlock in the bowels of the firectory structure that I don't find easily.

If you are on M$ Windows, you can use properties plus. You right click
on a directory and there is a Properties Plus option below Properties.
It takes these actions (e.g. mark as R/O) on the entire directory structure.
Does this sound like what you need?

You can do it quite easily with external tools if you are using windows...

Set up an external tool "Show Writeable Files" in some group.
Select options "Project Views", "Open console"
Program: C:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe
Params: /C dir /A-R-D /B /S
Working Dir: $FileDir$

Then specify an output filter:
Reg Ex: $FILE_PATH$



Now when you right click on a directory, select your external tool from the menu. It will list all writeable files within the directory (and sub directories).
