Re: Findstr question

Your code works just fine, but what I need is for there to be a message printed on the screen if the search string (%%d) is not found in the file.

Findstr question

Maybe I am missing something simple, but I would like to use findstr to search for a line in a file, and parse that line to give output (a for loop works). I have that down, but I would also like the script to alert the user if no match is found. So far I have this: for /f "delims=." %%f i...

Re: Findstr for blank lines

use regular expressions for the nonvisible

How would you do that?

I have tried things like

Code: Select all

findstr /n /r "^[\ ]*" file.txt


but I can't seem to get them to work

Findstr for blank lines

I'm simply trying to find a findstr command expression that will echo back all blank lines of the file with their line number (including lines that consist of all nonvisible characters) So far I have: findstr /n /v /r "^." "file.txt" But this will not echo back a line that has sp...

Re: Searching for redirection chars with findstr

:? Strange.. the original solution seemed to work, but maybe I'm crazy. I switched over to this new solution.

My original requirements were simply that the line did not begin with a '/', and the line did not contain 'illegal characters'.

Thanks again :)

Re: Searching for redirection chars with findstr

Thank you very much for your response, I hadn't known very much about findstr but now I have a much better understanding after deciphering your alternative solutions. Also thanks for the errorlevel alternative I found this solution suited my needs perfectly: findstr /r "^[^/\\:*?\"\"<...

Re: [Solved] Start CMD With Inactive Window

At least it will if the CMD windows are set to appear in the same position, which is how I have cmd windows set to appear.


How would one go about changing that setting (I would like to)

Re: hide entered password with astrics

Cat, you could do this in the batch file: (I think)

Code: Select all

for /f %%a in ('password.exe') do set "password=%%a"


but you would need to only output the password with the exe, you currently output a space before the password aswell

Re: Encoding / Decoding

Also, I had no idea you could do this :D very cool!

Code: Select all
