LHA for noobs

hi brainy peeps

i used lha for the first time yesterday. and found out after several hours of brain ache that you cannot use it from within a floppy drive
its got be in your sys for it to work ( DOH )

finaly found the commands to get it to make my first .lha file

but, it only saved the contents of the drawer ?

can someone tell me what letter ( switch ) to use and where,
so that it saves the drawer aswell

many thanks

tested with lha v2.11 running on workbench 3.9:
you need to add the "recursivly" switch, like that:
create archive: lha a -r archive.lha folder/
test the archive: lha t archive.lha
list the archive: lha l archive.lha
extract the archive: lha x archive.lha

@hit

thanks for the -r switch, your command did not work .

i had to type
lha a -r ram:file.lha work:file/
and it done it , drawer as well,

yesterday it only saved 15 files, but with the -r switch it has now saved all 123 files

many thanks
