Try: C:\Program Files\nconvert -help | more
This will redirect the output to "more" which will show the output page wise. You can also redirect output to a file (e. g. "C:\nconvert -help > nconvert.txt") and then open the help in any text editor.

NConvert overwrites existing files by default. Therefore there is no special parameter to force NConvert overwriting files available. I'm not quite clear what you want to achieve: Convert PCX to JPG and then delete the PCX?

Changing the default to non-overwrite and adding such a parameter might be a good idea. This might keep novice users from hazardly overwriting their files.

thanks i found the parameter.. -D..
which helps me to convert pxc files to jpeg and deletes them after converting...
it helps converting pcx image sequences to jpeg using it in a small harddisk space..
i will also try "more" option to see all parameters page by page
(not as fast as a thunder..!!)
thanks helmut..

Good to read that you get the results you want.

A note on "more":
"more" is not an option of XnView, but a DOS program which simply outputs the input it gets page by page. By using the character "|" the output of any DOS program (here: nconvert) can be piped (=directed) to another program (here: more).
For example, you could enter a command "type C:\config.sys | more" and output the contents of the file config.sys pagewise.
