Path in autoexec.bat not holding

Path in autoexec.bat not holding

Post by Al A » Thu, 01 Jun 2000 04:00:00



        using pure dos
        i keep my path short
        how
        use subst
        use doskey

        actually i constrain my path to my ramdisk
        have a series of doskey marcos

        e.g to start tc.exe :
        doskey BC=md d:\tc$tcd d:\tc$tpkunzip c:\lughaat\c\BORLAND\tc$ttc

        d: is my ram disk
        j: is my same ramdisk, using subst
        s: is a subdir in my ramdisk, using subst
        .
        .
        .

        4dos allows larger command-line
        don't know if 4dos agrees with win95
        there is 4dosNT, though

        dos7.x
        which underly win9x
        allows a command line as long as 1k
        not by default,
        u have to set the right swiches.

        also choice does somthing similar (again, dos 7.x)

1. autoexec.bat, path=, continuation line?

In autoexec.bat, is there a way to make continuation lines in the path=
variable?

I have a lot of path entries, and the line extends a mile out to the
right.  I would like to break the line somehow and have it all viewable
on one, unscrolled screen.

Any ideas?

Thanks.
