it's just that upper case letters are so much more intelligible,
so much more understandable. time was they were used like that somewhere,
like on the defense internet that was handed off to the people for 
freedom of speech in ~1974...
 
get it, freedom of speech. like freedos.
 
i thought so.
 
i'll continue to use the block caps when i think expedient.
 
p.s.
i say: in the help file, it should be documented that the switches 
are only there for either 1) compatibility with ms-dos, or 2) other stuff all,
so people who read the batch files put on the 1.0 and 1.1 test_3 distributions
know exactly what's going on there... less left to chance is more stability 
and that would be nice in a (batch for example) programming language/operating 
system. 

more stable is a good thing.

and thanks to those fixing the high memory and xms drivers so they're solid
and stable: 
no more tumbling numbers on my notebook.

and as regards "nobody uses them" below,
the 1.0 and/or 1.1 test_3 distribution(s) definitely did use them.

/F /MSG
most sincerely,
