There was no question, just a webfind. But it's an interesting discussion nevertheless, and WS is a better option yup.

...I was wondering if it could do functions
There was no question...
Hahaha, priceless. Sorry, I mistakenly took the first to reflect a vague but genuine question and had put quite a bit of effort into doing a Sherlock Holmes job looking around to discover some answers. You're right - it did make for an interesting thread. So, not a waste of effort in any event - that is, if something has been learned.

? I was wondering if DOS batch could do functions, I found an interesting website that explained how to do this, so I shared this with the community. I'm happy with the dos functions tutorial as I posted. Sorry for confusing things.

Ah batch files.. not elegant but it does the job for a lot simple things.

As simple as it is, you would be surprised how many well paid techs don't even know how to create simple batch files. I say this because I work in a department full of techs that know next to nothing about batch files (don't even talk about more powerful scripting languages).

Personally, I have switched to AutoIT. Awesome scripting app.
