Ok guys.Here's BAT-Man to the rescue for all your Batch file needs.Please give your suggestions and also mention if i have forgotton Basic commands.(I don't mean commands like IF EXISTS ,FOR..DO,Etc. , these i have omitted as they wold be better typed themselves by advanced users).As i have stated many times in the code, it can be optimised largely.But i have kept it simple for the Beginners.

PS : your response to this one will decide if I will give out the source for Fast Split-DX ,a splitting utility, whose code i consider to be a lot superior.

I usually do not vote and I will if I think it worth it. I been working on my own batch program and the interface wasn't even close to what you have. I haven't gone through the entire program or check your code but you get 5 From me. Thanks

Thanks Vtokarczyk.

When you said your interface was no way like mine did you mean it's even better.Are you giving the code to PSC.if so,When?.Thanks for the five .I'll try to return that back.

As to the rest what do you think??
Please leave your suggestions/Bug reports.

PS. in BAT-Man if you're planning to copy and paste more than 1000 lines at a time then i suggest you change the line :
Dim NumLines(1 to 1000) as string
Dim Numlines(1 to whatever) as string
