Program: DAILY 
Author:  Peter Hutchison


   Daily is used to run programs only once a day in your startup-sequence.
All is required is the DAILY command to be copied to your C: directory
, when executed it will compare the current date (Today) with the Daily's 
own  date (seen in LIST) and if they are different (eg Yesterday) it will 
set the WARN flag and can be tested using IF command and will set Daily's 
date to Today so that it won't be executed the same day, if the day's 
aren't the same no flags are set.

For example if these lines were added to your user-startup it will do a 
virus check of your hard disk only once a day:-

if warn
virus_checker sys:
