    I'm starting the design for Take Command v10. If you have any suggestions for TCMD or TCC, please submit them to the "Take Command and TCC / Suggestions" forum.

    (I will *not* be adding any new features to TCC/LE.)

    Functions min() and max() inside @eval (with nested evaluation).

    so that one could

    @eval[a+min(b+c,d,e)]

    instead of

    @eval[a+%@min[%@eval[a+b],d,e]]

    and

    set /a z=a+min(b+c,d,e)

    I could have used that recently. Other candidates for implementation by @EVAL
    are

    abs(), ceil(), flr()

    maybe even a version of conditional expressions, perhaps

    @eval[a+if(b+c GE d+e,f+g,h+i)]

    (using @IF would require four more @EVALs)

    and

    set /a z=a+if(b+c GE d+e,f+g,h+i)

    Since I'm just starting the design, it's a bit premature to announce a
    release date! There's still the design/coding/alpha test/private
    beta/public beta cycles left to do. (Which is, ummm, everything ...)

    Major upgrades have been running about 12-14 months; I don't know that
    that constitutes "somewhat fast" (well, maybe in comparison to
    Microsoft). Updates aren't mandatory; we find that people generally
    skip a version or two.

    Here's my list.
    1) Built-in support for memory mapped files.

    2) Support for serialized pipes - i.e. pipes that don't require a separate
    process. So things like setting env vars in the piped process get
    reflected in the calling process.

    3) Piping into a DO...ENDDO (note that this would work if the pipe was
    serialized per suggestion #2):
    dir /b | do file in @con
    echo file: %file
    enddo

    4) Command execution within a DO...ENDDO
    do file in 'dir /b'
    echo file: %file
    enddo

    Fast temporary files that wouldn't need to be cleaned up for starters.
