Re: Enabling Special Characters in Windows 10

Thanks, ShadowThief. I'm interested specifically in the Terminal here. I haven't had any issues using [`], [a] as well as the ones you mentioned. It'll be interesting to see where all this goes in the next major update to Windows 10 (Windows 11). There are a few undocumented characters. The below i...

Re: Utilities dealing with hosts files, WiFi, and system information

I make these utilities as entertainment, it is my "game". This is an important information because it tells a lot about the aim of your utilities. Until now my asumption was that your goal is to develop tools which are helpful to gather information for a user. In this case you should write it from ...

Re: Utilities dealing with hosts files, WiFi, and system information

Still no one has complained about the "lie". I don't think waiting a second is a big problem, besides, whoever bothers can remove or comment those few lines of code. Also the "lie" is cute, right? :D For a utility script, it's just fluff. Fluff like that is more acceptable in games. Given an animat...

Re: Clear clipboard with .bat file

echo off | clip This merely writes an empty clip to the clip board. If clipboard History is enabled, previous clips will be viewable using WinKey + V There are methods for resolving this in batch, however they require administrator access.

Re: Button functions via VT100, and Mouse.exe

Again, very nice lowsum. the multithreading gives it alot of potential for use as a means of input during gameplay. I'll have to find time to play around with it to see how accurate the coordinate reads are.

Re: Need help

I've not encountered a 3rd party exe that can satisfactorily report mouse click positions correctly for any given line and column position of the console. After a bit of digging around and testing I've found a suitable mouse input tool - Mouse.exe by IcarusLiaves at topic: https://www.dostips.com/f...

Re: Button functions via VT100, and Mouse.exe

A very nice tool you've made there Icarus. I can see it being easy enough to create a callable function for output of and selection from a dynamic menu. I've reworked the create button function into a macro and added switches that accept parameters for button color and button text Foreground and bac...

Re: Get cursor position

For pure batch, without powershell, It is much more efficient to use variable tracking of cursor movements than it is to capture and compare the current cursor position - even if you need to perform string length calculations in conjuction with set /a modification to y;x axis variables, you'll still...

Re: FINDSTR \s regexp meaning

Well, due to localization, the results won't be of any particular use here. ECHO /? | FINDSTR /R "\s" returns a single string: ECHO [message] What results do you get if you run ECHO /? | FINDSTR /R "\s"? FOR /? | FINDSTR /R "\s" returns some random strings from FOR's help.
