CNTDN.COM is a program that counts backwards from a number (1-99)
while waiting for a keystroke. If you press Esc the program will
terminate normally. If you press any other key the program will
exit via Ctrl-Break.
CNTDN is useful for pausing in long batch files at places where it
would be appropriate to break. I use it in my AUTOEXEC.BAT file
before the installation of the disk caching software because some
programs conflict with the cache and I can abort by pressing the
space bar.
To use CNTDN.COM enter:
CNTDN n
where n is the number of seconds you want to pause from 1 to 99
