Re: ERRORLEVEL and Where.exe program

My preferred solution is to define the programs name to a variable like so:

Code: Select all

 For /F "Delims=" %%G in (' where programname.ext 2^> Nul ')Do Set "%%~nG=%%G"
And then to execute you can make it conditional on the variables definition.

Code: Select all

 If defined programname (
  rem commands to execute
 )

The original design was to allow a degree of reusabailty through providing a label name to return to if Repeat was selected using substring modification to replace lbl with the actual label name %menu:lbl=labelname% The macro acts in effect as a ...

Re: Batch File to edit specific line of Text file

I didn't know "^" closes parenthesis and "&&" is used to add multiple commands within a menu item. Thank you so much for the patience with a noob like myself! caret ^ escapes the parentheses, essentially stripping it of its properties as a command token. Doublequoting a string / argument containing...

Re: Batch File to edit specific line of Text file

The code seems to functions perfectly fine despite not opening a "start ezcad "file.ez" in the if E end program command. If i'm not explaning myself clear enough I can try explaining again. Set "Menu=Echo/[R]epeat [C]ontinue [E]xit&For /F "Delims=" %%G in ('Choice /N /C:RCE')Do If "%%G"=="R" ( Goto...

Re: Batch File to edit specific line of Text file

At a quick glance, you have multiple commands within your menu macro that are not concatenated.

Re: color based on file extension

Use an IF command to compare the file extension and call out to Carlos' Color Function . An alternative to the Color Function is to use a color macro @Echo off Setlocal DisableDelayedExpansion If "!![" == "[" ( Echo/%%COL%% macro must be defined prior to delayed expansion being enabled Goto :end ) ...

Re: Best way to obfuscate a Batch File?

Good call, T3RRY! @gfnowadmin Hint: Prepend an ECHO command to the lines that obviously contain the obfuscated script code. Maybe you can find out what it contains. At least my antivirus didn't even allow me to get to this point. The script has been removed instantly. Steffen https://imgur.com/a/02...
