-WhatsNew c:\projects\projectx 5 \fileserver\projectx /HTML >test.html
Creates a html file test.html containing the newest files in c:\projects\projectx in the last 5 days and one hyperlink for each FILE to \fileserver\projectx\FILE

-WhatsNew c:\projects\projectx 5 http://extranet/projectx /HTML >test.html
Same as abobe but using an url instead a uri for urlprefix parameter.

-WhatsNew c:\projects\projectx 5 http://extranet/projectx /C /XML >test.xml
Same as abobe but use XML format and search only in file creation date.

Whatsnew is extremely useful in document management systems and file servers!
