Sorry --- I should have been more specific. I wrote ntcmd a while ago
because I was frustrated with existing modes for working with batch
files. ntcmd uses a parser to deal with cmd.exe's very weird syntax;
it's important to do that because cmd's syntax is highly irregular and
using regular font-lock patterns to match it is doomed --- in
particular, matches involving loop variables are complicated. (See
ntcmd-forward-generic-cmd and ntcmd-forward-for-cmd for some interesting
special cases and fossilized cmd.exe bugs.)
