Re: String Encryption (encoding)

I admit it's definitely convoluted. It's all fresh off the presses in the "proof of concept" / "hooray everything works" stage. I was so surprised that I couldn't find any real good examples of batch file cryptography that I figured I'd code up a few to share. I haven't had the ...

Re: Extracting required columns from the file

You have received some excellent replies. Here is another way to accomplish your stated result. (Tested on WinXP under WinVPC on Win7 Pro host.) @echo off & setlocal enabledelayedexpansion for /f "tokens=2,4-6" %%K in ( 'findstr "process behind" x:\yourpath\yourfile.log' ) do...
