Re: Is there a way to make a bootable batch file?

Re: Add Filename (minus the .mkv) as a Title to a folder of Matroska videos

Some time ago, I made a batch VID2MKV.BAT for merging all Video files with corresponding Audio files on a folder and generating MKVs (small side part of VirtualDub batch deshake project).

Won't work if TEMP folder has # on it (one could choose another unused valid character on dummy "yes...

Re: Determine Yes/No/All string for current locale

This is Debham code perfectioned to use TEMP folder and two steps: First isolates prompt section (using ? as delimiter) from path name (solves special TEMP folder names), and then parses that as before, tested on XP and win 7: @echo off setlocal copy /y nul %TEMP%\test.tmp >nul for /f "tokens=2* del...
