4DOS Tips and Tricks
by Ray Tackett


The TNT package consists of several "sub"zip files, each organized around
a particular theme:

NOLTR.ZIP Shows how to be almost completely independent of drive letters.
On a system like mine, with twelve logical drives, nobody wants
to remember where everything is. You can also learn how to set
up your batch files so you don't have to edit them if you move
a directory from one logical drive to another.

AUTOEXEC.ZIP Shows some tricks for keeping your configuration under control.
Overlaps somewhat with NOLTR.ZIP.

DO.ZIP A single batch file to replace many of the little buggers you
can't quite manage to replace with aliases.

STRING.ZIP Shows several variations on a single string checking/manipulation
theme.

ALIAS.ZIP Shows some tricks with nested aliases and a way to keep your
PATH string minimal.

MISC.ZIP A few miscellaneous goodies that might spark your own ideas.

These tips and tricks are in the public domain. However, my ego would be
happier if appropriate credit were given when this material is distributed.

The intended audience is 4DOS users who are over the "beginner hump" and
are ready to explore the full power of 4DOS.

These tips and tricks are by no means complete or comprehensive. They are
intended as points of departure for your own ideas.
