haveing a look on what these s modifier stands for (short path names) in 
%~s1 I realize
that my rasmol.bat script to fire up RasMol using a RasMolScript could
be much shorter and what is of more importance, more secure (not
dependent on the length of the batch file name itself), by combining *d*
drive, *p* path and *s* short:

@set RAZ=%~s1
@set RASMOLPATH=%~dps0
%RASMOLPATH%raswin.exe -script %RAZ%
