This is basically a stop watch for computers. It was "programmed" (if you can call it that) in simple MS-DOS commands. 

Simply copy and paste the following code into a text editing program, such as Wordpad, Notepad and Notepad++ and save it as "Stop Watch.bat"


Step 1: Code

Feel free to point out any mistakes I have made. This will also be going in my Mega Menu program once it is working fully. 

@echo off
set title=Stop Watch V 1
title %title%
color 0a

:start
cls
echo Press any key to start the timer or H to see the instructions
set /p start=
if %start% equ H goto help
if %start% equ h goto help
goto back

:help
cls
echo Press 1 to start/stop the timer
echo Press 2 to record a lap (maximum of three laps)
echo Press 3, when stopped, to reset the timer.
echo.
echo The timer only counts in whole seconds.
echo.
echo Press any key to go back
pause >nul
goto start

:back
set lap1=0
set lap2=0
set lap3=0
set time=-1
set reset=0
set timex=0
set timey=1
set err=0
set errx=0
set erry=0

:timer

P.S: I searched "images" on Google Images to find my last two photos. They are not mine, I do not claim they are mine. I have no right over them.

Step 2: Credit

If you wish to use this, like any of my tid-bits, you must do a series of things first:

1. Ask me for permission (I will say yes, but I want to know that your using it).
2. Give me credit for it in your program.
3. Send me a link or send me the program itself.

I am under the by-nc-sa license which states that you may use my program non commercially, so long as credit is given. 

Feel free to ask for help on a project.
cool, what do you use this for?
Sorry, I forgot to state that I made this because it could be made at the top of the instructable (as I usually do). <br> <br>I suppose, you can use it for whatever you think it could be used for. I am the messenger, what you use my message for is not my problem, unless you make it so.
That sounds a little crude, it wasn't meant to sound like that. But the message is the same.
So tired... Idea came to me and I had to put it on paper.
