OK. I'll try to provide you some patches for forrest.bat and forrestant.bat. I'm afraid we'll
have to use an iterative method until everything is completed because it is a kind of PITA

However, having rewritten my bat files, I can say that Forrest definitely runs on Win 98.

Stay tuned.

Here is an overview of the issue:
        Key: FOR-113
    Summary: Use on Windows 98
       Type: Bug

     Status: Unassigned
   Priority: Major

    Project: Forrest
  Component: shbat distribution - Forrest CLI

   Reporter: Pierrick Brihaye

Environment: Windows 98 / JDK 1.4.1

There are a lot of NT specifics in Forrest batch files (@setlocal, %~dp0...) that prevent
them to be run on Windows 98.

It would be nice to have this compatibility :-)

The most difficult part may be to emulate the setpwdvar.bat for NT. Here is a code snippet
that does the trick :

@echo off
echo @prompt set PWD=$p$_ > _temp_A.bat
%comspec% /e:2048 /c _temp_A.bat > _temp_B.bat
call _temp_B.bat
del _temp_?.bat

Hope this helps.
