Edlin: E (End)--Notes

Default drive and directory

Edlin writes the edited file from memory to the drive, directory, and filename on a disk that you specified when you started the current Edlin session. If you omitted a drive name at that time, Edlin writes to the current drive. If you omitted a directory name at that time, Edlin writes to the current directory.

Checking for disk space

Before using the e command, you should be sure your disk contains enough free space for the entire edited file that is in memory. If it does not, Edlin loses part or all of the file.

Read-only .BAK file

Suppose you want Edlin to save an edited file from memory to a disk, but the .BAK version of the file is a read-only file. In this case, Edlin displays a message in the following format to inform you that Edlin cannot replace the .BAK file:

Access denied - [drive:][path] filename.BAK

Both the original and backup versions of your file on the disk remain unchanged.
