I learnt something new today. You can use the DOS ‘ECHO’ command to output a line (or in fact any text you want) by putting a period ‘.’ immediately after the ECHO. i.e. The following will echo a blank line.
Also, if you want to echo some special characters you can put a carat ‘^’ before them:
C:> ECHO ^>^>^>
C:> ECHO >>>
> was unexpected at this time.

I knew that but then I am ancient. But the site you linked to had stuff on it that I wished I’d know years ago.
Thanks for the info, I served much :)
