BEN stands for the Batch ENhancer:

Batch is a very simple yet powerful language DOS uses. Batch
files always end with the extension .BAT. For example, the
AUTOEXEC.BAT in the root directory of your boot disk is a batch
file. Although batch file is very flexible, it has some unwelcome
weaknesses. For example, it cannot get input from the user or
even do simple color-changing.

BEN is developed to compensate for Batch language's weaknesses.
BEN IMPROVE many aspects of the current batch file functions, and
it also introduce many new ones. With BEN, you can produce very
USEFUL batch files that can even compete with compiled
programming codes. Yet, BEN is so SIMPLE to use that even a
beginner can produce ATTRACTIVE batch files in no time at all.
Once you start using BEN, you will be able to incorporate colors,
sounds, menus, pop-up boxes, directory controls, and a host of
other SPECTACULAR and UNIQUE features into any batch file that
you ever write.

Advantages of BEN over other batch file enhancement programs:
- LARGE number of POWERFUL functions (42 in total) all
contained into one EXE file.
- All of these functions are very EASY to use.
- Comes with BENEdit, a text editor that is tailored for BEN.
With BENEdit, you can edit all your batch files and access
all the features of BEN QUICKLY and EASILY.
- Optimized for SPEED.
- Perfect for use as menuing systems.
- Can be used for programming any batch utilities (eg.
