I have a couple of questions to the more knowledgeable / experienced 4DOS
regarding batch file encryption.
1) What is the runtime version of 4DOS, and why did it support batch file
encryption, whereas the "normal" version of 4DOS at that time didn't?
2) Today's 4DOS does support encryption. BATCOMP.C (the BATCOMP source) -
too. But BATCOMP.EXE from the free 4DOS (August 2004) does not. Albeit it
doesn't build correctly from source code, this could be fixed, so I could
provide a new BATCOMP.EXE that does support encryption. Is it worth to do
that? I'm not an expert but don't regard this encryption as serious - the
password is placed... in the batch file itself, albeit in encrypted form!
