Grin. I still write batch files. Most of the time I do it for software
development purposes. Like if I have a large Java project i use a batch
file to automate the compile process and create the jar file.
I also use a command line C/C++ compiler called gcc, and the best way to
build stuff is use a batch file that compiles everything for me. It
takes all the grunt work out of typing everything.
So, hey, writing batch files are fun. I am still a command line geek at
heart. I sometimes miss the days when Dos was the only thing in town. At
least back then i could install the entire OS using Jaws for Dos.

Ah. Wasn't it fun writing batch files and seeing them work after you
wrote them? That's what got me interested in learning programming.
Unfortunately, the only skilled reader that could be found at the time
had to stop reading for me during the learning of COBOL. I had to
drop out of a fast-paced course due to this.
