Re: ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES



David,

  The VA$ commands will pull Signature Environment settings and not necessarily
DOS environment settings.  You can still use the DO command, accompanied with 
the switches /nv /x, to run DOS batch or utilities invisible to the user. The 
syntax is as follows:

      BX (DO/nv/x Test.com)

You can, however, pass parameters to a DOS file in the same manner.  Just keep 
the same command as above, but, add your desired arguments:

      BX (DO/nv/x Test.com Arg1 Arg2)

The <> is the same command as <>.  The only difference is
that the first has a longer string value with the commas included and the 
latter does not.  So, <> will give S/G 1841 the value "1,3,4,5"
and <> will give S/G 1841 the value "5".  Same command just different
arguments.
