For the record, I finally managed to finish my Script module (which,
unlike Batch, can do GoTo, and checks the exit codes) and pushed it to


Also, ScriptVars module can be used to have variables (captured from
Log, viewers, files, or error codes) and manipulate them, and expand
them inside commands.

ScriptBlocks module provides a simple structured programming extension
so that you don't have to use the dreaded GoTo. The Script.Tool lists
all commands and a few small scripts.



PS: Merry Christmas :)
