|Thanks Vince. You're right, of course, but without _ENVSIZE, I have to use a file or CLIP: to determine the number of lines in my environment. I could over-estimate its length, but that's a workaround, not a solution.
Here's another workaround.
v:\> set /a envsize=1 + %@execstr[set /x | echo %@lines[con]]
Even an internal/plugin _ENVSIZE would have to plow through the environment and
count the strings.
