    Minor suggestion for the Take Command help files:

    In the section "Variable Functions Listed by Category", please move @UNQUOTE and @UNQUOTES out of File names and into the Strings and Characters section. Or else, add it to the "Strings and Characters" section as well.

    Reason: I spent a long time looking for a function like this in the "Strings and Characters" section, because the batch file I was writing needed to de-quote a string. The string was not a filename. I tried cobbling one together with @LTRIM and @RTRIM, but that attempt failed. After probably 40 minutes, I found @UNQUOTES in the "File names" section, which was what I was looking for.

    Since @UNQUOTE and @UNQUOTES do not check to see if the value is a file anyway, I think it would be better classified as a string function. Thanks for listening.
