Dos Learn (tm)
copyright PC SPECIALTIES INC



Dos Learn (tm)

PURPOSE
To control the performance of a series of DOS commands called a batch.
Instead of typing this series of commands each time you want to perform them,
you enter the series once in a file called a batch file. You then call that
file as if it were a DOS command by entering its name at the DOS prompt. Batch
files allow you to tailor DOS to do new and more powerful commands to serve
you. This program makes writing batch files easy. Dos Learn (DL) keeps track
of your keystrokes so that you don't have to think ahead to write a batch
file. This batch file can be edited later by most word processors. This allows
you to experiment while in the learn mode, then just take out any mistakes.

DIRECTIONS
To use Dos Learn type "DL xyz.bat" (xyz.bat is the name of your batch
file). Dos Learn will display a prompt LEARN > and process any dos commands
(examples: cd\, dir, chkdsk). It will also run programs (i.e.. 123, pgraph,
wp, ws). When you are done type "xxx" (lower case) and DL will return to the
original subdirectory and write the batch file. Before you start, we recommend
that you make a subdirectory to hold you batch files. To do this enter:
cd\
md\ batch
cd\batch
included are several samples.

Sample I

ACTUAL KEYSTROKES DESCRIPTION

DL xyz starts Dos Learn program, xyz is the name
of the new batch file.

cd\123 changes to a directory called 123 (this
is where the Lotus program is kept).

123 name of program that starts Lotus.


At this point you are in the Lotus program. Exit by typing /wqy.


cd\batch changes back to batch subdirectory.

dir*.bat shows all batch files.

xxx 3 lower case x's end the Dos Learn
program.


Sample 2

KEYSTROKES DESCRIPTION

DL word starts Dos Learn program, word is the
name of the new batch file.

cd\wp50 changes to a directory called wp50
(this is where the Word Perfect Version
5.0 program is kept).

wp name of program that starts Word Perfect.


At this point you are in the Word Perfect program. Exit by typing F7. Then yes.


cd\batch changes back to batch subdirectory.

dir*.bat shows all batch files.

xxx 3 lower case xxx's end the Dos Learn
program.



Ask & AskT & AskW
copyright PC SPECIALTIES INC



Ask

PURPOSE

This program gets a key from the User. It stores a number in memory
variable called errorlevel that can be tested (for more information on
errorlevels, see your DOS Reference Book). It is not case sensitive (it will
work on upper case or lower case letters, eg. a ). This allows you to ask
questions and get answers. It is to be called from a batch file. This program
uses easy to remember errorlevel codes. Starting with a (1) to z (26), then 0
(27) to 9 (36).

DIRECTIONS
Sample I
ACTUAL KEYSTROKES DESCRIPTION
(in Batch File)

cd\lotus changes directory.

echo Run Lotus (L) or PGRAPH (P) echo displays a statement on the screen.

ask calls the ask program and sets the
errorlevel.

if errorlevel == 38 go to error we can test the value of errorlevel
with the `if' command. The ask program
sets the errorlevel at 38 if a non
alphabet (a-z) or a non number (0-9) is
pressed. If the errorlevel is 38 we use
the DOS go to skip down to a label
called error (Notice the : before the
word error, this tells DOS it is a
label).

if errorlevel == 16 pgraph if the errorlevel = 16 (the letter p)
then run the program call pgraph. If
the errorlevel is not 16, then continue
to next line.

if error level == 12 123
:error
cd\batch processing continues at this line, the
program changes back to the subdirectory
called batch and does a directory of all
the batch files.

dir *. bat

Note: Always start on the high end and go down. Dos does not really check to
see if the errorlevel is equal. It checks to see if its greater than (>) or
equal to (==) the number.


Sample 2

cd\lotus

echo Run LOTUS (L) or PGRAPH (P)

ask
if errorlevel == 37 go to error

if errorlevel == 16 pgraph

if errorlevel == 12 123

:error

cd\batch

dir * .bat

errorlevel codes are set in descending order
a or A = 1 0 = 27
b or B = 2 1 = 28
c or C = 3 2 = 29
etc.
ask returns 38 if any other key was typed.



ASKT is a program that can be used to report what the errorlevel will be set to.


KEYSTROKES DESCRIPTION

askt

p The p was pressed, so the errorlevel
would be set to 16.

Note: askt will not return until a alphabet ("a -z" or "A - Z") or number ("0
- 9") has been pressed.



ASKW is a program that waits a set time.


KEYSTROKES DESCRIPTION

askw 60 waits 60 seconds, if no key is pressed
returns an errorlevel of 38.



Display (tm) & Get_Keys
copyright PC SPECIALTIES INC


Display(tm)

PURPOSE
This program displays a text file on the screen. This allows you to make
a menu with a word processor. It is to be called from a batch file.


DIRECTIONS
To use Display type "display xyz.doc".

ACTUAL KEYSTROKES

cd\lotus

123

cd\batch

display sample.doc



Get_Keys

PURPOSE
Sets errorlevel of both keys (numbers only). This is useful in a menu
batch file.

TYPICAL BATCH FILE

display 321.doc

get_keys

if errorlevel == 19 123
if errorlevel == 18 pgraph
etc.



Menu Maker & Yn
copyright PC SPECIALTIES INC


MKM

PURPOSE
To provide a simple menu system. One that does not use any Ram (not Ram
resident) and will not interfere with any other programs. It is easy to use
and maintain.

DESCRIPTION
This program reads all the files (that are specified) in the current
directory. It then sorts a list and writes a menu screen to a file called
321.doc. Then it writes a batch file (321.bat) to display the menu screen and
process the choice. It is recommended that you make a subdirectory called
batch and keep your batch files there. Since this program generates its own
menu program you may use it on multiple pc's without royalties. You may not
transfer mkm.exe to other machines unless a site license has been obtained.

DIRECTIONS

ACTUAL KEYSTROKES DESCRIPTION

mkm *.bat only .bat files.
OR
mkm includes .com, .exe, and .bat files.



Yn

PURPOSE
Used to get y or n from a user in batch mode.

TYPICAL BATCH FILE

Echo do you want to continue

yn

if errorlevel == 3 go to start
if errorlevel == 2 go to proceed
if errorlevel == 1 go to end

NOTE:
1 = N or n
2 = Y or y
3 = any other key
