Re: My batch game is fubar - how come?

I believe the reason he kept setting the choice to 5 before getting the user's choice was an (accidental) way of clearing it so that if you entered no choice at the prompt, the game wouldn't just use the last choce you entered. Perhaps replace all SETs which set the choice to 5 to set "input=&q...

Re: Any interest in batch networking applications?

Thanks for that, I'm sure I'll find a use for it indeed! It seems like a similar concept but as you said, it opens a windowed session... plus my one was never going to support scripting.... Is anyone awear of a tool which I'd end up exactly cloing if I went ahead with my plans of making a command-li...

Re: To create a batch file to run all the sql scripts

You would need to specify those in the command that calls your SQL client... I'm not familar with MSSQL, but I am familar with MySQL.. I can be of little help here. Try issuing 'C:\path\to\mssqlclient.exe /?' or 'C:\path\to\mssqlclient.exe /help' or 'C:\path\to\mssqlclient.exe --help' or something a...

Any interest in batch networking applications?

I know that some people out there are a bit batch nutty, and I was just wondering if anyone would have any interest in some tiny C programs that allow you to send data over TCP networking sockets from the command line (or within batch) very easily, for example a simple client may send some data to m...

Re: calling python script in batch file..

I'm not familiar with python myself, but there will be an interpreter called python.exe. So I'm pretty sure something like... @echo off cd \ cd input for %%f in (*.txt) do ( echo "%%~nf" path/to/python.exe "D:\impressio\deployment code\add_null.py" .\"%%~nf.txt" .\ %%~n...

Re: DOS to word processor to USB drive

Just my opinion: I like using DOS sometimes for its 'naked beauty', that is the simplicity and ease of using a bare, basic OS which is just COMMAND.COM, CONFIG.SYS, MSDOS.SYS and AUTOEXEC.BAT (and the file I'm bound to have forgotten ). DOS is also quite good if you're learning Assembly and want to ...

Re: Batch Files! What is the most absurd you've seen?

I once made a batch chatroom, but I never deployed it because as people say more and more things, client machines are reading larger and larger files. They're read each second from the server's hard disk so it's not such a good idea for me to use it. Maybe if I store the chatroom in memory and reduc...

Re: looking for coding

aGerman, we're not confised, we do understand what OSes are and that batch scripts rely on CMD.exe which in turn relies on Windows so we (maybe not Ian, just until now) understand you cannot make an OS with batch. Then again, we don't know if Ian wants to create an OS or a script that emulates one.....
