### [How-To] Calculate the date of Easter Sunday

Because of a recent request I searched the forum for an Easter calculation but didn't find one. Here you go ... @echo off &setlocal EnableDelayedExpansion for %%i in (1590 1666 1685 1924 1943 1962 2019 2038 2057 2076 2095 2133 2152 2171 2190) do ( call :easter %%i echo !errorlevel! ) echo ~~~~~~~~~~...

### Re: Get the total size of all subdirectories with a specific name

There are some threads about the size of a directory here at DosTips, like that one: https://www.dostips.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=9615&p=62024 Although I still have my doubts that Batch is the right language for a task like this. Even if you are able to get the total size, keep in mind that mat...

No problem for holidays or anniversaries at a fixed date. @echo off &setlocal for /f %%i in ('WMIC OS Get LocalDateTime /value') do for /f %%j in ("%%i") do set "%%j" if "%LocalDateTime:~4,4%"=="0928" echo Happy Today! if "%LocalDateTime:~4,4%"=="1225" echo Merry Christmas! pause But for days like E...

Always depends on how the content of your file actually looks like. @echo off &setlocal set "inputfile=file1.txt set "outputfile=file2.txt" set "find=;word " setlocal EnableDelayedExpansion <"!inputfile!" >"!outputfile!" ( for /f %%i in ('type "!inputfile!"^|find /c /v ""') do for /l %%j in (1 1 %%i...

### Re: Command line to write registry keys bypassing any prompt

After initial testing, it didn't work. Syntax error on Char 99. After reviewing the code i tested again and i spot the error you left on purpose :) :?: Tested now and it works out of the box in a cmd shell as well as in a batch file. FWIW No idea what this should be even good for. A simple REG ADD ...

### Re: Command line to write registry keys bypassing any prompt

At least you have to escape the comma with a caret because it's a separator for arguments in a command line. And I'm pretty sure the double backslashes are wrong in the VBS syntax. I haven't tested though.

### Re: Forfiles and escape char

If I count the quotes then it seems that the closing parenthesis right before the point is neither escaped nor quoted. I suspect it is treated as to be closing the FOR clause. Try to escape it with a caret. Probably the equal sign, too. Something like that for the regex pattern ... "(?<=\"access_tok...

### Re: JREPL.BAT v8.6 - regex text processor with support for text highlighting and alternate character sets

How exactly did you use it? Just because I can't repreduce your result.

Code: Select all

``````C:\Users\neffe\Desktop>echo PROXY proxy-aaa.bbbbbb.com:789|jrepl ".*[^0-9A-Za-z\.]([0-9A-Za-z\.]+):([0-9]+).*" "\$1:\$2"
aaa.bbbbbb.com:789``````

### Re: LABEL Being Processed without GOTO or CALL

The equal sign is easier to type as well. Highly dependent on the keyboard layout. It's [Shift]+[0] on my QWERTZ keyboard :lol: But I also prefer characters that don't generate errors. Usually I just write a line of colons. I've also seen that people indent the code of subruotines. With keeping the...

Probably something like that (provided the name of the text file is "test.txt"):

``for /f "usebackq tokens=1* delims=, " %%i in ("test.txt") do >"%%j" type nul``
Of course the files are empty. How should we know what content is expected ...

### Re: Making a program process multipe files and........can I ask for assitance

Well, I don't know what software does generate these files. If you know it then you could try to find specifications of the files. The drones or their brand might have specific forums where you could find those information or where you could ask for it.

### Re: Making a program process multipe files and........can I ask for assitance

Without knowing the content of your files and the related format specification I'm afraid we can't help out at all. And in case the "not human readable" means that the data is saved in a binary format a Batch script will most likely not be able to process the content. Only plain text.
