Debugger: how to set %1 variable?

Nov 11, 2016
Howdy, I'm a 4DOS user looking for a batch file debugger, and seem to have found one. However, I can't take the first step with my batch file, which is how to set the %1 parameter. I could call it in TCC with the parameter but that doesn't get it into the debugger.

I wouldn't ask for help except the forum search program won't search on "%1" - says it's too small, common, or whatever.

Thanks for your time.

Type your batch arguments in the text box on the toolbar:

Most excellent, Mr. Dye!

And thanks, Joe, but I did try that - I don't like to be asking questions unnecessarily.
