    Does TCC improve CMD's implementation of ECHO?

    From Echo a blank line The following in a batch file will produce an empty line: Echo. or Echo: The second option is better, because Echo. will search for a file named "echo" if this file does not exist the command does work, but this makes it slower than echo( Joe

    Utilisation de la comande LOADBTM

    That is something you will need to ask Rex. Might be best to email him at [email protected] As TCCRT is no-cost, could you not just point the user to the download site, and have them install it themselves? Joe

    How to? SETLOCAL Level

    Hi Scott, Yepper, I have localcount added to my prompt, as such;prompt `$e[9999E$p$g%@repeat[#,0%localcount]` I wanted to mimic the + meta character of prompt, which is why I have %@repeat[#,0%localcount] in my prompt. I like the LOCAL .btms, gonna tinker with them. Joe

    How to? SETLOCAL Level

    Dave; I removed the ENDLOCAL alias, and now have only;[email protected] %_batch eq 0 (*setlocal & set localcount=%@inc[0%localcount%] & echo %localcount) I only wanted the alias to work from the command line, not from a .BTM file, thus the @if %_batch eq 0. So far, so good. Thanks again. Joe

    How to? SETLOCAL Level

    ...and the corresponding;alias endlocal=`*endlocal & if %localcount le 0 (set localcount=0) else (set localcount=%@dec[0%localcount%]`) No doubt I will make some further tweaks. Thanks Dave! Joe

    How to? SETLOCAL Level

    In the help file, it states "SETLOCAL and ENDLOCAL may be nested up to 32 levels deep". So, when I go beyond 32 levels, I get the following;c:\users\jlc\utils>setlocal TCC: Exceeded SETLOCAL nesting limit Is there a way to determine how many SETLOCAL levels deep I am presently at? Joe

    UNZIPping older .ZIP files

    I have many .ZIP files from the late 80's/early 90's. The version of PKZIP/PKUNZIP that I purchased back then, 2.04g, has no problem unZIPping these files. FILE.EXE from Cygwin shows;c:\users\jlc\downloads\technotes>file Zip archive data, at least v1.0 to extract When I...
