Post Tools For Batch
Hi guys :) Because of this thread: viewtopic.php?t=2734 I ended up writing a couple of simple programs (which you can find on my website - http://batchbin.ueuo.com/batchbinaries.php). I've found them to be very useful and orange_batch showed quite some interest in them. They do not require any extras like DLLs or the .NET Framework; they're entirely standalone.

Please reply with your thoughts, suggestions and ideas for new tools so I can fill the needs of batch scripters :)

Thanks,
Phillid

As long as we're on the topic of executable tools, http://www.filedropper.com/multicol this is one that I made a little while back. It's a pretty simple C++ script that prints text in different colors.

Someone wants to print his IP address on the top line of the CMD prompt and have it remain there when the cmd prompt is used for other things. :)

Foxidrive, it is that related to a thread on this forum? If so, please send me the link to it.. I'm interested..

EDIT: I found the thread you're talking about, foxidrive. I'll look at writing something for him.

Thanks

I would recommend against using "GetStdHandle". When stdout is redirected (like in the "do" part of a for loop) the handle returned is the redirected handle. "CreateFile" can give a direct handle.

I wrote some tools myself a while ago, I haven't written anything for a while though.

Have a look at my "wcde" tool, it might give you some ideas of things you might want to implement. I'm not really happy with the source and it's an abandoned project now, but anyway it might give you some ideas.
