FLY

Creates and executes a batch file on the fly. If you have a dozen
things to do, and you don't want to use an editor to make a batch
file, just use fly, and enter your batch commands "on the fly".

When your'e done, just hit carriage return, and fly will execute
the batch file its created. The batch file name is $TMP.BAT, and
fly will delete it when its done.

This tiny programming effort has saved me the agony of watching
long processes wait for me to provide the next command.

The following example provides relief of a certain amount of agony,
oh, the little ">" is fly's input prompt;

C>fly
>arc x archive1
>arc x archive2
>arc x archive3
>arc x archive4
>
Other batch files can be executed by;

>command /c filename.bat

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read: http://www.os2museum.com/wp/mtswslnk/
