I noticed another behavior difference between DRDOS and FreeDOS:
 If,in a batchfile there is the line:
and no argument is passed in command line when calling the batch file,
Then DRDOS acts as if the comparison failed (that is,does not goto LABEL
with above line,but goto LABEL if the line says IF NOT instead),
while FreeDOS (FreeCOM v0.82 ak pl3 xms_swap) issues a "syntax error" message
and ignores the line altogether (does not goto LABEL no matter whether the 
line says IF or IF NOT).
  Logically,both are defensible. I prefer DRDOS behavior. Has somenone
tested this under MS-DOS ?
