TSBAT28.ARC collection of useful batches updated at garbo

Post by Timo Sal » Mon, 21 Oct 1991 23:08:53



Sun 20-Oct-91: I have a collection of useful batch files which I
have updated to be garbo.uwasa.fi:/pc/ts/tsbat28.arc.
  I have added a LEVEL.BAT testbench batch for testing the error
level returned by programs.
  I have updated the ASK.EXE batch file enhancer. It now has the
option to of returning with a timeout errorlevel. The usage of
this enhancer is:
 ASK [Prompt] [/b] [/d] [/l] [/t##] [/u]
                !    !    !    !      +- convert to Upper case
                !    !    !    +- Time-out parameter (0 = forever)
                !    !    +- convert to Lower case
                !    +- Direct read (no <-+ needed)
                +- Batch mode (needed only if no prompt)
   I have added an ASKENV.EXE batch file enhancer to the collection.
It is similar to ASK.EXE, but instead of returning an errorlevel
value, it sets the (parent's) environment variable ASKENV value
equal to the user's response.
