Help topic "autobatch.btm"

The topic does not mention the simple ways to suppress using TCSTART: /I or
/IS command options or the StartupFile=No directive.

BTW, is the only directory searched for TCSTART and for TCEXIT the one
containing the program when a path is not specified?

Suggestion:
Add controls to the OPTION dialog, STARTUP page, to set the StartupFile and
ExitFile directives.

Yes - see the "TCSTART and TCEXIT" topic in the help.

Suggestion:
Add controls to the OPTION dialog, STARTUP page, to set the StartupFile and ExitFile directives.

Those directives are obsolete and only maintained for backward compatibility.

They are very useful for applications that are not interactive; also
occasionally for "piped to" instances. AFAIK TCStartPath is examined only
when a TCC instance starts, so ExitFile is the only dynamic control for
TCEXIT execution (short of fooling around with the file system itself), esp.
since the /IS command option does not affect TCEXIT execution either. Please
retain them!
