BATCHCOM is a Batch Compiler. It compiles DOS batch files (.BAT) into
programs (.COM). In addition to the normal DOS commands, BATCHCOM supports
many extra commands for program flow, variables and screen handling.
BATCHCOM was designed to work with DOS 3.30, so some newer command options
(found in DOS 5 or 6 and Windows NT, etc.) are not supported. However,
with the extra commands, BATCHCOM is like a complete programming language.
See the examples (with extension .BC) included with this distribution or
run BATCHCOM /L to see a list of all supported commands.

BATCHCOM [filename[.bat]] [options]
/M - include error messages
/S - use fast CRT screen procedures
/O - overwrite existing files without asking
/E n - environment size (default: 8192 bytes)
/L - list all commands
After compiling a program, you can usually compress it with the included
program TINY to make it even smaller. You can also convert it to a .EXE
program and then use LZEXE or something else. For larger programs, it is
usually best to use UPX (http://upx.sf.net), which works for both .COM
and .EXE programs.
