To set an environment variable named include so that the string C:\INC (the INC directory on drive C) is associated with it, type the following command:

set include=c:\inc

You can then use the string C:\INC in batch files by enclosing the name include with percent signs (%). For example, you might include the following command in a batch file in order to display the contents of the directory associated with the include environment variable:

dir %include%

When Windows NT processes this command, the string C:\INC replaces %include%.

Another possible use for the set command is in a batch program that adds a new directory to the path environment variable, as the following example shows:

@echo off
rem ADDPATH.BAT adds a new directory
rem to the path environment variable.
set path=%1;%path%
