Hi Ryan,

I've been investigating this question for you. There are lots of examples on the Internet, but to be honest, I found them all to be either too fragile or incomplete/inaccurate.

I have therefore set about writing my own batch "function", "isAnInteger", which I hope will prove to be a bit more robust and accurate.

You are very welcome to have this -- are you interested ?

I hope you will say yes, because the coding style will also give you an insight in how to write batch "functions" -- considered by many as the holy grail of batch programming. You will also see other techniques in use, that will help you, going forward.

If you've already got a solution and don't need another, then no problem -- I will add mine to my every-growing library of batch functions.


Kind regards
Nick
