    Description:The ALL utility processes lists of file names and other input data in a
    variety of ways. ALL can manipulate and/or execute input records received via a pipe,
    from an input file, or from the console.

    The ALL utility enables you to execute one or more operating system
    commands on all files in a given list of files. Single file
    specification portions may be used and manipulated for flexible
    processing.

    Optionally, ALL creates a command file containing commands as well as
    user input required by interactive kinds of programs.

    In addition to creating command files ALL can also produce a normal data
    file. Thus you can also use it to perform different kinds of textual
    transformations on files.

    Programs as well as user defined fields found in the records of the
    input file can be used to construct commands for execution or to produce
    data files. In this respect, ALL can be a faster and easier to use
    substitute for programs such as AWK or Perl whenever its more limited
    facilities are sufficient for your purposes.

    This ALL evaluation kit will not process more than 50 input records in
    a single run. Thus you have a fair chance to test it and see whether it
    meets your needs.

    CUTPRM
    Summary:Split Filename/Ext in *.BAT line parameters
    Download:cutprm10.zip(Mar 3 2000, 6.2K)
    Description:
    This program will split one of the command line parameters of the batch
    file. It works in DOS system or console. Its cutting character
    defaults the period '.' so that it splits a filename parameter into its
    name and its type (extension). If the third parameter is "test.asm",
    the command "CUTPARAM 3" will set the third parameter to "test" and
    insert a 4th parameter "asm". The former 4th and following parameters
    are shifted to the 5th and following ones. You can choose any other
    cutting character for example a '_' to split a parameter like
    "proj_001.prj" into "proj" and "001.prj".

    CutParam can be handy for those who use command line compilers, linkers,
    installation or backup batch processes, etc., or those who would like to
    extend the automatic effect of some extension linked application
    starter. You do not need to supply your filename manually without a
    *.BAT file extension if it was asked to.

    If you call cutParam in a batch file you can cut this extension off and
    use the name of the file without the extension to produce other files
    with the same name but with other extension(s). You can also use the
    extension alone to perform extension dependant process.

    Description:
    Envy is a batch file enhancement utility for MS-DOS, Win95, Win98, NT
    batch files. Envy will work under Windows NT/2000 if command.com is
    used as the batch processor.

    Envy is a stand-alone program that provides 38 new subcommands for use
    in batch files (spanning string-manipulation, mathematics, bitwise
    operations, comparsions, date & time functions, random numbers, file
    I/O, and text parsing).

    Envy is able to alter environment variables in the parent command.com
    environment, greatly simplifying many programming tasks which must be
    accomplished via a batch file.

    Envy is well-suited to address frequent problems such as needing to
    build a filename or directory name from the current date as well as
    handling the "<" and ">" character processing inside a batch file.

    replacement parameters it is possible to send specific characters
    and colors to the screen. In addition, several new functions are
    introduced. The program makes use of the BIOS functions. Redirection
    of outputs (into a file instead of the screen) is not possible. All
    characters (including control characters like CR, LF, ESC, TAB, FF,
    BEL) are sent as characters to the screen. The number sign # is used
    to start replacement parameters. % parameters can be used in the same
    way as with the ECHO command.

    LMOD 1.3
    Summary:Line & List Modification
    Download:lmod13.zip(12K)
    Description:LMOD extracts data from an input source (STDIN): from redirected DOS screen output, for example, or from any (ASCII) file. The extracted information is inserted into a given text or command string, and sent to STDOUT for redirection into a file. You may extract a complete line, a part of it (starting column, size) or words (by number), even several items from a source line in any order. And this will be done either for a single line, or for a given range of lines of the input source. What you can do with LMOD:
      • set environmental variables with information from (DOS) screen output
      • get keyboard input
      • generate a command using extracted input data
      • generate a list of commands for each item of a given (file) list
      • extract (and modify) range of lines from a file
      • modify lists or tables, arrange columns

    To set a variable: generate a SET command (or WINSET / SETX), and execute it thru a temporary batch file. This method also works under Windows NT/2000.
    Special Features:

      • change case for extracted data
      • tabs (to given column) for formatted output
      • right aligned fields (numeric data in tables)
      • insert CR+LF to generate several lines for each input line
      • omit CR+LF at end of output (to append later)
      • insert line number (to generate filenames, for example)
      • insert special characters by code number or in quoted string

    Description:
    Photo.bat/Markmenu is a batch file that I have been adding to since
    late 1995. Originally, it was only meant to take a snapshot of the
    computers system files, and a few other things but has turned into a
    multi featured program. When I first wrote it, it was only 1000 bytes
    long, and had no options. Now, it has a whole bunch of options.

    Some of the features include:
    A menu program, that can load its own config files.
    A console that allows you to type in commands
    A (crude) dialer program
    Logging
    Built in debugging features
    Built in memo "email" system (it's not really email in the sense
    that you can email other people on other computers. It's more like a
    local message center.

    Summary: Batch util sleeps until event occurrence.
    Author: John R. Souvestre (1997).
    Updated: 2005-04-10
    Download: sleep_47.zip
    Description: A very flexible command line tool for scheduling events; intended for batch files.
    From the docs:
    The possible events are: FOR a length of time, TILL a certain time, a question ASKed of the user, certain FILESPECS appear or disappear, the UPS is active, or a SCHEDuled event. Commands can be combined. Sleep is DOS, DesqView (uses DV System Memory), OS/2, and Windows aware.

    • Sleep will accept an indirect command file. Multiple lines can be used and command files can be nested. The resulting command line must be under 16K.
    • Sleep takes up to 100 filespecs, with paths and wildcards. Sleep will exit when any of these filespecs is created (+) or deleted (-). If also prefixed by "&", the conditions for those filespecs are ANDed rather than ORed.
    • Serial and parallel port monitoring: Sleep outputs a byte to the port's control register, then monitors the port's status register, looking for the presence (+) or absence (-) of a bit or bits.
    • Scheduled events can stored in a file which contains one line per event. Sleep returns the error level of an event when it occurs.
    • Sleep can also be called to return an error level based on the date or time.
    • The cursor keys can be used to modify time remaining.
    Usage: INDIRECT COMMAND FILE.Sleep "@"<file>
    FOR syntax............Sleep for [[hh":"]mm":"]ss
    TILL syntax...........Sleep till [[hh":"]mm":"]ss
    ASK syntax............Sleep ask '<prompt string>' <responses>
    FILESPECS syntax......Sleep ["&"]"+"|"-"<filespec> ...
    PAR and SER syntax....Sleep par|ser <port adr> <out> "+"<in> "-"<in>
    SCHED syntax..........Sleep sched <file>

    VARGET
    Summary:Get assisngments from INI file
    Download:varget12.zip5K)
    Description:
    With VARGET you can get assignments from a (Windows style) INI file, and make them available as environmental variables. Section names are supported.
    Example: call var get [desktop]wallpaper from %windir%\WIN.INI

    To generate the variables VARGET uses the same CALL VAR construct as VARSET.COM (Win 2000/XP compatible). Several assignments can be extracted with a single command.

    Example: call var get MAIL,SOURCE,ADDRESS from XJOB.INI

    VARGET offers an easy way to use INI files for your own batch projects. To save environmental space you can activate variables only when you need them.

    Download:xecho133.zip(Mar 30 1998, 84K)
    Description:
    This file contains a couple of DOS utilities which are written in English and German languages. They are useful for those computer users who like to create batch files and who are looking for assistance and more performance. The main program in the collection is Xecho.com. It replaces the DOS command Echo. Xecho allows the user to work with a lot of parameters.
    Thus it is possible:
    to send the current date and time to the screen
    to send any text string containing any characters (including <>|) to
    the screen
    to finish the echo line without CR/LF
    to switch on or off NumLock, CapsLock and ScrollLock
    to output frequencies via the normal board speaker
    to check LPT.. for printer (ready for printing or not)
    to check mouse
    to perform integer decimal calculations
    to generate error levels from a lot of occurrences
    to set cursor to a certain position or make it invisible
    Xecho is described completely. The other utilities provided show their functionality by typing their name with the /? parameter.
