What is it?
Daybat is a utility that will allow you to run a different batch file
every day of the week.
The ideal way to use DAYBAT is by making it a part of your AUTOEXEC.BAT
file. Then, each time your computer is turned on, DAYBAT will run the
batch file for whatever day of the week it happens to be.
What do I have to do?
Create upto seven batch files. Name them with the first three letters
of the days of the week:
In these batch files, you place the commands you want executed on each
day. If you don't want a batch file to run on a particular day, then
don't create a file for that day. DAYBAT will run and DOS will return a
"Bad Command or Filename" message. Then DAYBAT will abort.
Each of the batch files must be located in either the DOS path, or the
same directory as DAYBAT.EXE.
If you find that DAYBAT meets your needs, then please send a Shareware
contribution to the author. You may send whatever you feel the software
is worth. I would suggest $5.00. I do not expect you to send a
contribution if this software dosen't meet your needs.
Please send your voluntary contributions (payable to JOSEPH SHEPPARD) to:

While this program performs fine on my system (AMI/Mylex 386) I can't
guarantee that it will work at all on yours. If you have a problem, contact
me and I will attempt to solve the problem.
Full source code is included. If you modify the source code, please do
not remove my name. I would appreciate a copy of the modified source so
I can see what you've done.
Thanks to Jon Badeaux of The Hotline PCBoard, (818) 240-8664 for
providing the original idea for DAYBAT.
