Rex,

From [title] you mention that %@inc is replaced with SET /A and I was wondering what other functions, etc are near obsolete please?

I think they're mostly pretty obvious -- none of the following will ever be updated.

Just off the top of my head:

Commands:

BREAK
DRAWBOX
DRAWLINE
DRAWVLINE
KEYBD
KEYS
LIST
LOADBTM
MKLNK
PLAYAVI
PLAYSOUND
REXEC
RSHELL
SCREEN
SCRPUT
TEXT
VERIFY
VSCRPUT

Functions:

@CRC32
@DEC
@INC
@MD5
@SFN

Variables (not including the 32-bit-only variables):

CMDEXTVERSION
_CPUUSAGE
_MKLNK_ERRORS
_MKLNK_LINKS
_RUBYTYPE
_RUBYVALUE
_VIRTUALPC

And, of course, any version of Take Command / TCC that runs on Windows 32-bit. (Version 21 will be x64 only.)

This doesn't include the commands that are still commonly used but actually call other commands (like REN and TITLE).
