Self-modifying batch files, brings back memories of programming with MS QuickBasic! BTW, this does require NT, since 9x doesn't have pushd or popd.

OT - A comment on vim - when you type 'gvim' at the command prompt, you don't need to wait for gvim to exit to get your prompt back (since at least version 5.6, could be earlier). 'start gvim' isn't necessary, as control is returned almost immediately.

    [hippo]: I had a low-paid job about 20 years ago and seriously considered going down to a 3-day week. Would have worked 60% of the time for about 80% of the cash.
    [Corion]: ambrus: Well, I pay rent, but don't own a house with variable/ unforeseeable costs
    [hippo]: The thesholds/benefits balance at the time was nuts.
    [hippo]: But that doesn't last because, you know ... politicians. :(
    [Corion]: hippo: Yeah, if you still get enough money to get by and don't have expensive hobbies or other fixed costs that can work out well
    [ambrus]: ah good. I pay only rent too. but that still costs significant money.
    [Corion]: ambrus: Yes, but that is already budgeted for
    [holli]: Corion is well off. I am sure there is a script of his running in the frankfurt banking data center, diligently mining bitcoins ;-)
