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.

What would you do with them?
