Introduction.

ADDPATH, CHGPATH, DELPATH, and INSPATH are batch file utilities designed
to facilitate changes to your path statement by adding, changing, deleting,
and inserting directories into the path. Some programs are unable to find
their associated files, such as overlay or configuration information, unless
you are currently in their directory or add their directory to your path
statement. A long path statement causes searches in directories that are
used only when these programs run. With these programs it is possible to
design a batch file that modifies the path statement, runs the program,
then changes the path back to normal.


Addpath.

To add a directory to the end of the path enter ADDPATH followed by the
pathname of the directory.

Example: if your path statement is PATH=C:\;C:\DOS and you want to add
C:\UTIL, enter ADDPATH C:\UTIL. The resulting path will be
PATH=C:\;C:\DOS;C:\UTIL.

Errorlevels returned by ADDPATH are:

0 - no error
1 - no directory was specified on the command line
2 - directory already in path
3 - environment area full


Chgpath.

To change a directory in the path to another directory, enter CHGPATH
followed by the pathnames of the old and new directories.

Example: if your path statement is PATH=C:\;C:\DOS;C:\UTIL and you want to
change C:\UTIL to C:\UTILITY, enter CHGPATH C:\UTIL C:\UTILITY. The
resulting path will be PATH=C:\;C:\DOS;C:\UTILITY.

Errorlevels returned by CHGPATH are:

0 - no error
1 - less than 2 directories were specified on the command line
2 - old directory not in path, or new directory already in path
3 - environment area full

Delpath.

To delete a directory from the path enter DELPATH followed by the pathname of
the directory.

Example: if your path statement is PATH=C:\;C:\DOS;C:\UTIL and you want to
delete C:\DOS, enter DELPATH C:\DOS. The resulting path will be
PATH=C:\;C:\UTIL.

Errorlevels returned by DELPATH are:

0 - no error
1 - no directory was specified on the command line
2 - directory not in path
3 - environment area full

Inspath.

To insert a directory into the path enter INSPATH followed by the pathnames of
the directory to insert before and the directory to insert. If you want to
insert a directory at the end of the path, use ADDPATH.

Example: if your path statement is PATH=C:\;C:\UTIL and you want to insert
C:\DOS before C:\UTIL, enter INSPATH C:\UTIL C:\DOS. The resulting
path will be PATH=C:\;C:\DOS;C:\UTIL.

Errorlevels returned by INSPATH are:

0 - no error
1 - less than 2 directories were specified on the command line
2 - before directory not in path, or new directory already in path
3 - environment area full
