This is a small utility I use in my batch files for branching on
a particular day of the month. Such as system maintenance that
I do on the first of every month on my bbs. Its pretty easy to
use. The program will set the DOS error level to whatever you
setup on the command line.

Example: DATE_SW 1 10

This will result in the DOS error level being set to 10 if it is
the first of any month.

You can use this with a line in your batch file like the following:

If errorlevel 10 goto first

Note: If you don't enter the error level then a default of ten is
used.

THIS UTILITY IS PROVIDED AS IS AND HAS NO WARRANTY, YOU SHOULD
NOT HAVE ANY PROBLEMS I'VE BEEN USING IT FOR A WEEK WITH NO PROBLEMS.


This program is given freely, heck its how I am learning to program.
