Willard and Michael,

I had to look up 'batch mode' and since by luck my browser is set to French
language I got a lovely hit.


Automatic sequential dealing by lots, akin to picking numbers for the
lottery of interaction : ) or a move in memory of Lot's wife - no looking

All kidding aside, Michael's reminder of batch processing is salutary. In this
time of forced confinement and wide expanses of liberated time, it might be wise
for us to learn more about batch since it can help us out of the jam and clean
up the fledging semantic web as suggested by the advanced functions listed in
the Wikipedia article.

I for one ordered Unix in a Nutshell (my copy of which got disposed in a bought

Hail to the Batchlers!
