DESCRIPTION
        OVERVIEW
        ConSet serves two primary functions: the first is to display and
        manipulate CMD.EXE environment variables; the second is to adjust the
        console window's parameters. ConSet combines all of the functions of
        CMD.EXE's built-in SET command and the primary functions of the
        resource kit's SETX program with a floating point math library and
        some console adjustment tools.

        When ConSet is run without any parameters the current environment is
        printed. If a variable name or part of a variable name is specified,
        only variables with matching names will be printed. A match will
        occur if the string specified matches all or the beginning portion of
        a variable name. If a variable name is followed by an equal sign and
        nothing else, that variable will be deleted from the current
        environment. If the equal sign is followed by any text, the variable
        will be defined with that text. This default behavior can be modified
        by the presence of any of the options in the section titled OPTIONS.

        A variable can also be set from a pipe or redirected STDIN if the
        command line ends at the equal sign: 'COMMAND|ConSet VAR1=' and
        'ConSet VAR=<file backquotes indicate a command that is to be read write value not as but must begin and end with double the first backquote: conset var="``Not" will if multiple lines are stored in variable only line can retrieved echo print entire contents use set or for example: exit code of process options prints detailed information specified switch when used alone synopsis brief description each all available internal documentation string file evaluated one more mathematical expressions delimited by commas semicolons carriage returns linefeeds final omitted then result printed stdout pound sign comment indicator ends at next delimiter any expression contains characters> that
                character must either be escaped with the escape character
                (a=^^1,b=a^&1) or the entire expression enclosed in quotes
                ("a=^1,b=a&1"). The foregoing does not apply to expressions in an
                input file. Whitespace is permitted in most places.

                Numbers:
                All numbers are used and stored as long doubles (80-bit), except
                that bitwise operators will truncate the effected numbers to 64-
                bit integers. The use of floating point numbers on computers is
                inherently inaccurate and the user should be cautious of rounding
                errors. Precision may be limited by setting the variable
                %ConSet_prec% with the desired number of digits. For example, '
                ConSet_prec=6' for six digit precision. The default is 20. Numbers
                may be entered in scientific notation (i.e. 1.2E2=12 and
                1.2e-2=0.12).

                Number bases:
                Numbers may be input as decimal, binary with the prefix 0b,
                hexadecimal with the prefix 0x, and octal with the non-standard
                prefix 0o ('zero-oh'). This program is intended to be a
                solution to many scripting problems and the standard octal
                prefix of 0 only creates an additional problem. The default
                output is in base 10. To force the output to one of the other
                supported bases, append the corresponding flag character to the
                switch (/AO=octal, /AX=hex, and /AB=binary) for integers, or the
                flag character and a period (i.e. /AB.) for floating point. For
                traditional octal output, use /AOF.

                Variables:
                Variable names must begin with an alphabetic character or the
                character '@' and they may contain numerals or any of the
                following characters enclosed in the double quotes: "`@#_\'".
                Variable names need not be enclosed in percent signs unless they
                violate the foregoing rule. If they are variables which a value
                will be stored to, such as lvalues and variables which use the
                increment and decrement operators, they must not be enclosed in
                quotes. Variables beginning with the character '@' are local to
                the current instance of ConSet only (Ex: @a=5,@a+1). Variables may
                contain expressions consisting of values and other defined
                variables. Undefined variables will produce an error; they are not
                SET to zero as set will do.

                List and array variables:
                Multi-element variables can be indexed as lists and arrays in
                mathematical expressions. An array is a table of one or more rows
                with one or more columns in each row. Arrays require an index for
                the row followed by an index for the column. A list is an array of
                only one row and requires only the single index. Indexes are
                specified in square brackets following the variable name using the
                format LIST\[element\] and ARRAY\[row\]\[column\]. Indexes are zero-
                based and the specified elements must exist. Individual elements
                in a row are delimited by spaces or commas and rows are delimited
                by semicolons or linefeeds. If a list or array variable is
                included in an expression without an index, it will be read as an
                expression. Two methods are provided for creating lists and one
                for creating arrays (see seq() and \{\}).

                        Ex: "list=seq(30+((5546 SET>>month)&1),Month,1,1,12)"
                        Ex: mat=\{2000 2001 2002;29 28 28\}

                \{ \}           Defines a set and must be used alone in a comma
                                delimited expression (Ex:
                                /A x=\{0 1 2;10 11 12\}, 5x\[0\]\[1\]).
                :=              Assigns an expression to a variable. Use this
                                operator when the expression should be assigned
                                without evaluation. Use backquotes to assign an
                                element of a list or matrix (Ex:
                                /a var:=`matrix\[0\]\[1\]`).

                                expr)).
                ,;              Expression separator.

                Functions:
                If a function name is not followed by optional whitespace and a
                parenthesis '(', it will be interpreted as a variable name.

                User-defined functions:
                Variables may be defined as functions by including parentheses
                and a parameter list in the variable name. The function must be
                defined with no spaces between the function name and the first
                parenthesis. The variables in the parameter list must match the
                variables in the expression. For example:

                        ConSet /A xRoot(x,y):=x**(1/y), xRoot=xRoot(8, 3)

                Multi-statement functions can be defined by enclosing the
                statements in braces. Do not terminate the last statement with a
                delimiter, it will be the return value. For example:

                        ConSet /A func(x,y):=\{x+=1;x**y\}, z=func(2, 2)

                                returns -1. Parameters may be quoted strings or
                                unquoted variable names. 'offset' need not be quoted.

                                defaults to 32767.
                rdim(var)       Row dimension of a array.
                round(expr \[,int\])
                                Rounds 'expr' to 'int' digits after the decimal.

                sign(expr)      The sign of the value returned by the expression:
                                (expr>0, sign()=1; expr<0, sign()=-1; expr=0,

                sinh(expr)      Hyperbolic sine.
                sqrt(expr)      Square root. Also x**(1/2).
                sum(expr,var,low,high)
                                Sum of expr with var from low to high. For
                                example, 'sum(x/2+0.5,x,2,4)' results in 6.
                tan(expr)       Tangent.
                tanh(expr)      Hyperbolic tangent.
                tick()          A relative time in ms that the system has been up
                                (wraps at 49.7 days).
                utime() Universal time in hours.

        /B
                When used with the /A switch, numbers will be output in binary
                form. If this switch is followed by a decimal, the fractional part
                will also be converted and printed.

                Ex: ConSet /AB "bin=1<<31"

        /C      name=value to append
                Concatenate the existing value of 'name' with 'value to
                append'. This procedure is normally accomplished as follows:

                SET var=%var% more stuff

                If 'value to append' is omitted, a newline will be appended to
                the variable's contents if it exists. If 'name' is not
                previously defined then it will be set with 'value'. No spacing
                is added between the concatenated strings. This switch can be
                used to append additional elements to a list as follows

                ConSet /C VAR= %NewElement%

        /D      StringToMatch
                Delete all variables beginning with 'string'. If 'string' is
                omitted, all 'ConSet_' variables will be deleted.

                EX: ConSet /D MyVars_

                This simplifies the task of cleaning up at the end of a script.
                Precede all of your variables with a unique string and use this
                switch to delete them all when they are no longer needed. For
                example:

                SET MyVar_File=%1
                SET MyVar_Dir=%2
                ConSet /D MyVar_

        /E
                Perform an additional expansion of strings before setting or
                printing.

                EX: ConSet /E VAR=%%VAR2%%

                This can be used for delayed expansion of variables in a script
                or on the command line, and for expansion of variables in
                values retrieved from the registry.

        /F
                When used with the /A switch, numbers will be formatted
                according to the user's locale setting unless they are in the
                binary, octal or hex bases. Commas, radix, or other separators are
                inserted as specified by local settings. If the output base is
                octal, this switch will cause the output to be in the traditional
                format (0# instead of 0o#).

                EX: ConSet /AF VAR=123456789

        /H
                When used with the /P switch, typed text will not be echoed.

                Ex: ConSet /PH Password=What is your password?

        /I
                When used with the /A switch, numbers will be output as
                integers.

                Ex: ConSet /AI "int=1.1"

        /K      var=\[\\computer\\]hive\subkey\value
                Get the value from the specified registry location. Supported
                hives are \[HKEY_\]: CLASSES_ROOT, CURRENT_USER, LOCAL_MACHINE,
                USERS, and CURRENT_CONFIG. For remote computers, only the root
                hives LOCAL_MACHINE and USERS are supported but the others are
                still available as subkeys.

                EX: ConSet /K VAR=HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Console\FullScreen

                The hive may be specified by the full name (i.e.
                HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT), the shortened name as shown above (i.e.
                CLASSES_ROOT), or the common 3 or 4 letter abbreviation (HKCR,
                HKCU, HKLM, HKU, HKCC). Both upper and lower case are accepted.

        /M      var\[=\[value\]\]
                Set or clear the machine (system) variable in the registry.

                EX: ConSet: /M /U var=value

                These variables are read from the registry when a top level
                CMD.EXE is started, such as when opening a new console window.
                Changes to these variables do not affect the current or child
                processes.

        /N      StringToMatch
                Only the name of the variable(s) will be printed.

                EX: ConSet /N



                The normal output when listing variables is 'VARNAME=VALUE'.
                This switch will cause only VARNAME to be printed.

        /O
                When used with the /A switch, numbers will be output in octal
                form. If this switch is followed by a decimal, the fractional part
                will also be converted and printed. If the switch /F is included,
                the traditional octal format will be used.

                Ex: ConSet /AO oct=100

        /P      var=prompt
                Prompt for input to be stored in the variable. 'prompt' will be
                printed as the prompt.

                EX: ConSet /P UserName=What is your name?

                Displays the specified prompt and waits for input. When RETURN
                is entered, input terminates and the string is stored in the
                specified variable. Spacing is permitted after the prompt. The /H
                switch may be included to disable input echo.

        /Q
                Disables all error reporting. Use this switch with caution.

                Ex: ConSet /QD MyVars_

        /S
                Set window and buffer parameters into 'ConSet_...' variables.

                EX: ConSet /S
                EX: ConSet ConSet_Color=0F

                Sets the following variables with the indicated value:

               ConSet_Title        The title of the console window.
                ConSet_Color        *The text colors. See 'COLOR/?' for format.
                ConSet_W_Lines      *The number of console window lines.
                ConSet_W_Cols       *The number of console window columns.
                ConSet_B_Lines      *The number of console buffer lines.
                ConSet_B_Cols       *The number of console buffer colunms.
                ConSet_Cursor_sz    *The size in percentage (0-100) of the
                                        cursor.
                ConSet_Cursor_XY    *Position of the cursor. Top-left is '0 0'.
                ConSet_MaxWin_XY    The maximum window size permitable.

                If ConSet is used to modify any of the variables that are
                marked with an asterisk, ConSet will adjust the console window
                to match the value specified. The example above changes the
                background color to black and the foreground color to white. The
                largest permitable buffer dimensions are 32,767 by 32,767.

        /T      var\[=\[value\]\]
                Set or clear the user variable in the registry's volatile
                (temporary) environment.

                EX: ConSet: /T var=value

                These variables are read from the registry when a top level
                CMD.EXE is started, such as when opening a new console window.
                Changes to these variables do not affect the current or child
                processes. This environment is not saved at user logoff.

        /U      var\[=\[value\]\]
                Set or clear the user variable in the registry.

                EX: ConSet: /M /U var=value

                These variables are read from the registry when a top level
                CMD.EXE is started, such as when opening a new console window.
                Changes to these variables do not affect the current or child
                processes.

        /V      StringToMatch
                Only the value of the variable(s) will be printed.

                EX: ConSet /V

                The normal output when listing variables is 'VARNAME=VALUE'.
                This switch will cause only VALUE to be printed.

        /X      and     /X StringToMatch
                When used with the /A switch, numbers will be output in hex
                form. If this switch is followed by a decimal, the fractional part
                will also be converted and printed.

                Ex: ConSet /AX "hex=num&0xF0"

                When used with a string, only the variable that exactly matches
                StringToMatch will be printed or deleted.

                EX: ConSet /X VarName
                EX: ConSet /DX VarName

                Normally all variables whose names match or begin with
                StringToMatch will be printed or deleted. This switch permits
                printing or deleting only the one variable which matches
                exactly.

        /CD
                Set the current directory into CD.

                EX: ConSet /CD

                CD is supported as a dynamic variable by Windows 2000 but by
                not by Windows NT4. This switch makes getting the current
                directory on NT4 almost as easy. The current directory of any
                drive that has been accessed by the current instance of CMD.EXE is
                also available as the variable %=D:%, where D is the drive letter
                of that drive.

        /DATE   \[y+value\] \[m+value\] \[d+value\]
                Set the local date (YYYY-MM-DD) into DATE, the local week number
                (S## M##) into WEEK, the local day of year (001-366) into DOY, the
                local weekday name into WEEKDAY, and the system (UTC) date (YYYY-
                MM-DD) into SYSTEMDATE.

                EX: ConSet /DATE

                DATE is supported as a dynamic variable by Windows 2000 but not
                by Windows NT4. This switch makes getting the current date on
                NT4 almost as easy. Most scripting problems require that the
                date be in an easily parsed format, and the international
                standard used by this program is just that. The WEEK variable
                is set with 'S## M##', where S## is the week number with Sunday
                as the first day of the week and M## is the week number with
                Monday as the first day of the week. WEEKDAY is set with the
                weekday name in the local language. With version 1.2 the variable
                JULIAN has been replaced by the variable DOY. JULIAN will remain
                available for a short transition period.

                Addition and subtraction can be performed on the current date
                to produce a date relative to it. This does not affect the
                system's date. Follow the /DATE switch with the desired math, for
                example:

                ConSet /DATE y+1 m-13 d+30

        /PID=pid#
                Make all changes to the process with process identification
                number 'pid#'.

                EX: ConSet /PID=245

                If 'PID#' is specified all changes will be made in the
                environment of the specified process instead of in the current
                environment. This feature can only be used to write to the
                processes environment; all reads will still be from the current
                environment. If 'PID#' is not specified, the variable PID will be
                set with the PID# of ConSet's parent process.

        /RANDOM
                Set a random number into RANDOM.

                EX: ConSet /RANDOM

                RANDOM is supported as a dynamic variable by Windows 2000 but
                not by Windows NT4. This switch makes getting a random number
                on NT4 almost as easy. This program uses a much better
                algorithm than does Windows 2000. You can see the difference if
                you call both in a tight loop. The function rand() is available
                in the math package.

        /TIME
                Set the local time (HH:MM:SS.mss) into TIME, the system time
                (HH:MM:SS.mss) into SYSTEMTIME, and the time bias (\[-\]minutes)
                into TIMEBIAS.

                EX: ConSet /TIME

                TIME is supported as a dynamic variable by Windows 2000 but not
                by Windows NT4. This switch makes getting the current time on
                NT4 almost as easy. The TIMEBIAS variable indicates the difference
                in minutes between UTC (system time) and local time (UTC=local
                time+TIMEBIAS). The bias is not sdjusted if addition or
                subtraction is performed on the TIME variable.

                Addition and subtraction can be performed on the current time
                to produce a time relative to it. This does not affect the
                system's time. If the resulting time carries over to a previous or
                following day, the date variables will be set with the applicable
                date. Follow the /TIME switch with the desired math, for example:

                ConSet /TIME h+1 m-13 s+30


ENVIRONMENT
        If the variable %ConSet_prec% is defined with a value, that value
        will be used as the precision for floating point numbers.

        This program creates, modifies, and deletes environment variables.

REGISTRY
        This program does not read configuration information from the registry.

        The /M, /U, and /T switches create, modify, or delete values in the
        machine or user environment subkeys.

LIMITS
        The environment appears to have a limit of about 32 kilobytes.

ERRORLEVEL
        The errorlevel set for all errors is 1. An errorlevel of 0 indicates no
        error.

CHANGES
       Version 1.4
        1. Fixes a minor decision error with enumerating registry variables.
       2. When the switches /M and /U are used together when listing the PATH
          variable, PATH from the machine key and PATH from the user key will
          be concatenated as: PATH=<machine>\[;\]<user>. This is the same
          behavior as the system. The intervening semicolon is included only
          if necessary.

BUGS
        Plenty. Report them to <conset>.
