Hello,

1) Is it possible to contine the current session once TCEXIT.BTM has been called?

2) I have a series of statements to be run in a global routine. After adding a few more statements I now get an error so what is the best way to correct this?

Global /i /q gosub do_fldr
Global /i /q (some other call)

:do_fldr
statements
return

TCMD 8/9/10 under XP Pro sp3 IE7

You're aware that DO supports /S now, right? In a batch file, DO /S is probably preferable to GLOBAL in most cases. I tend to think of GLOBAL as a hack for the benefit of not-very-smart externals, not as a feature to use regularly.

It needs to be backward compatible back to 8.02..... DO /S hasn't been available that far back...

DO /S is available in 4NT 8.02. The equivalent of the /N option of the
GLOBAL command (not used by the OP) became available in the DO
command only in V10, and /J not yet. The /H option can be emulated by
the /A: option.

I see

DO varname IN [range...] [/I:"text" /S[n] /A:[[-|+]rhsadecijopt] fileset

but wouldn't GLOBAL be easier as I have several

FOR %fn in (whatever) ren "%fn" "newname"
....

so wouldn't I have to use one one DO statement with each REN statement.

================================I have currently:

for %drv in ( %_HDRIVES ) (
cdd %drv\CSG_PICS
msgbox OK "FIXJPGS" "In %_CWD"
:here1
global /i gosub DoFldr
if "%1" ne "" goto :here2
cdd -
)

I still haven't gotten a good reply about this. Right now this is what I have:

:here1
msgbox OK "FIXJPGS" "In %_CWD"
global /i /q gosub DoFldr
if "%1" ne "" goto here2
cdd -
)

Goto here2

:DoFldr
echo %_CWD

You can also simplify things using delayed variable expansion.
This command: ren "* *.jpg" "%%@replace[ ,_,*]"

renames all the JPG files that have a space in their name.

I uncovered an anomaly with delayed variable expansion and filenames that
contain a tilde character.

This directory contains 9 files. Only one has a tilde in its name.

Actually, tilde isn't matched on the command line with TAB completion
either.
