EditVar/EditV32/EditV64 and Choose/Choose32/Choose64 v2.0\n\nHome page: [URL]http://www.westmesatech.com/editv.html[/URL]\n\nEditVar/EditV32/Editv64 and Choose/Choose32/Choose64 are command-line\ntools designed to allow for user input in shell scripts (AKA batch\nfiles). There are three .exe files for each program: DOS, Win32, and Win64.\n\nEditVar works by obtaining the contents of an environment variable and\npresenting it for interactive editing. If you make any changes to the\nvariable's contents and press Enter, EditVar writes the changed variable\nto the parent environment of the program that started it (typically\nCmd.exe). EditV32 requires Windows NT 4.0 or later; for Windows 9x/Me,\nuse the MS-DOS version.\n\nEditVar is similar to the Cmd.exe Set /p command in Windows 2000 and\nlater, but it may be preferable for the following reasons:\n\n* It allows you to edit a variable, not just set one.\n* It can limit the length of the typed variable.\n* It can mask the typed input for simple password security.\n* It can limit typed input to numbers only.\n* It offers a timeout feature (useful when a script needs to run\nunattended).\n* It can automatically "escape" reserved shell characters in variables\nit creates.\n* It provides useful exit codes: For example, an exit code of 4 means\nthat the user pressed Ctrl-C to abort.\n* It comes with an MS-DOS version that works in Windows 9x/Me as well as\non MS-DOS boot media.\n\nChoose is similar to the Microsoft Choice tool, but it has more\nfeatures. Here are some reasons why it might be preferable to Choice:\n\n* It doesn't beep when the user makes an invalid choice.\n* It offers a "default key" feature, which lets a user press Enter to\nselect a default choice.\n* It comes with a DOS version (useful for MS-DOS boot media).\n* The Win32 version's timeout feature doesn't get confused when you run\nmultiple instances in separate console windows (this was a problem with\nearlier Win32 console versions of Microsoft's Choice tool).\n* It can suppress the display of the user's choice.\n* It offers a "line input" mode where the user must press Enter after\nmaking a choice.\n\nWhat's new?\n\nVersion 2.0 includes 64-bit Windows versions.
