ENVMATH.COM does math with DOS environment variables. What good is that, you say?

Well, for starters, you can control looping within a batch file- try that with plain DOS! Since ENVMATH allows incrementing (+1) and decrementing (-1), it is easy to run a loop, say, 10 times- or 26,153 times! ENVMATH also can compare two variables, so you can keep looping until a target is reached, like 0, or maybe your age. Used in conjunction with ENVSAVE- a bit of freeware bundled with it- you can set up batch files to count how many times the machine is booted, or a certain program is run. You can use it to generate numeric parameters to pass to other programs. Remember, any Windows program can be started from a batch file, too!

For more information, see the ENVMATH Readme file, and the ENVSAVE Readme file.

Note: Unfortunately, ENVMATH will not work on Windows NT systems due to system security restrictions (they are not really DOS).

The abbot shook his head.  “Michael and the others went too far when they went to the Kaiser.  It is not for us to order the affairs of kings, but to care for the poor and lowly.”
“That,” said Dietrich, “may require you to order the affairs of kings.”
