if there is a comp.lang.batch
i dont get it.
2 questions: (running DOS 6.2)
1. can i set an environmental variable with output from a program?
I'm trying to set it to the current date, and i can stick the date in a
text file, but "set <var> < <program>" doesnt work?
2. why do certain batch programs quit half-way through?
please respond via e-mail
