I quit using .bat files a couple years ago and switched to Windows
Script Host scripts (.vbs, .js). Can capture the output of programs
and parse it, more robust filesystem manipulation, etc. I'm writing
the few "management" scripts (backups, etc.) that I'll need for my svn
implementation using WSH.
