BATEDIT
Type: verb (acts somewhat like a pseudoverb since remainder of input
      line will not be executed)
Use: Causes the input mode to be changed to batch (prompt symbol <).
     All following lines are placed in the specified batch work file
     until the string ENDBATCH or endbatch is found in the input.  If
     the specified line number is an integer then the first line
     entered will replace that line.  Any further lines entered will
     be inserted in the work file following the specified line number.
Adverbs:
  BATQUE.....The number of the work file for which the text is being
             prepared (1 to allowed maximum which is locally
             dependent, often 2)
  BATFLINE...The number of the line to be replaced and/or to have
             text inserted (used only if no immediate argument
             has been given).
Examples:
  (1).  On BATEDIT(3.0) the first line entered will replace
        original line 3 and all following lines will be
        inserted between that line and original line 4.
  (2).  On BATEDIT(7.5) all lines entered will be inserted
        between original lines 7 and 8.
Notes:
  (1).  The work file is automatically renumbered.  Use BATLIST
        frequently to keep track of the new line numbers.
  (2).  If the first line entered contains the string ENDBATCH or
        endbatch, then the work file is not alterred.
