Messages During Command File Execution

 

During your command file, you may want to give instructions to the user, highlight certain Windows, or simply provide the user with information about the processing steps. There is a variety of different ways to display messages during a command file; some messages stop command file execution until the user makes a decision or "Okays" the message, while others simply display the message on the screen for a fixed length of time, then disappear. A number of special command file functions which begin with the "@" symbol are discussed in this section; see the section above, "Special Command File Functions", for more detailed information on these functions.
