Tue 14-Apr-92: I have updated my collection of useful batch files
and tricks making it garbo.uwasa.fi:/pc/ts/tsbat35.zip.
   Sometimes there are situations where a batch file needs to call
another in order to perform its task. There is a genuinely clever
trick in Wolverton & Gooking, Supercharging MsDos, Microsoft Press,
1991, p. 102 to circumvent the need of having a separate batch by
making a batch call itself. I have modified the solution a bit and
rewritten my SAFEDEL.BAT (safe delete of files) so that it no longer
needs the auxiliary SAFEDEL1.BAT batch.
   Likewise the SHOW.BAT (wildcard multifile type command) has been
updated and the auxiliary file SHOW1.BAT has been deleted.
   The same book shows how to push the current directory without the
need of resident programs, auxiliary executables, or environment
variables. On the other hand this is less general than my
PUSHDIRE.BAT which uses an auxiliary executable and environment
variables. PUSHIT.BAT based on the idea from Wolverton & Gooking
does not work between different drives.  It have added this file to
tsbat35.zip along with its auxiliary text file CD.AUX.
