STOP_BAT.ZIP contains files to be used in your AUTOEXEC.BAT file to
allow you to press the SHIFT, CTRL, ALT or any combination of these
keys preceding a command line to skip that line in your AUTOEXEC.BAT.
The files of "Skip Parts of AUTOEXEC.BAT" were listed in July 1993
issue of PC COMPUTING.I know, you're running DOS v6.0 and you can select any number of AUTOEXEC configurations. Have you ever just wanted to stop your system from booting one specific program in your AUTOEXEC.BAT? WANT no more! Enclosed in this ZIP file are three ways to perform this task. The included files are:
SHIFTKEY.COM
CTRLKEY.COM
ALTKEY.COM
Place the file name followed by an error checking line in your AUTOEXEC.BAT file and you'll be able to stop the execution of a single program merely by holding down the ALT, SHIFT, or CTRL key...or any combination of two, or all three. As an example, to keep from loading WINDOWS in the AUTOEXEC.BAT, precede WIN with the following lines:

SHIFTKEY
IF ERRORLEVEL 1 GOTO NOWINDOWS
WIN (this is a line you already have..do not include this)
:NOWINDOWS

When you don't want to start Windows, hold down one (any one) of the SHIFT keys while your AUTOEXEC.BAT file is processed. Otherwise, leave the shift keys alone. It's that simple.

These .COM files are brought to you at the convenience of PC COMPUTING, July 1993 issue. I have taken the liberty of typing the files for you and running the script files through DOS's DEBUG program to compile them. Also included with the .COM files are the .SCR (script) files just so you can see that I have not screwed you. To compile them yourselves, UNZIP the *.SCR files into a directory within your path statement. Then type:
DEBUG < SHIFTKEY.SCR
DEBUG < CTRLKEY.SCR
DEBUG < ALTKEY.SCR

PC computing is great with so many choices!!
