Re: Coding challenge for any interested parties

You should also check against code injection inputs like 'test=123" & echo(' with a big enough length like 10. I only found one reliable way to check whether the input string is empty. I'm not sure if i should post it here as it may spoil the fun out of it for others to discover that for themselves....

Re: Coding challenge for any interested parties

I think, you need to provide some more detail on the input: - the encoding of the characters: Which codepage do you assume to be used? - the source type: Is the input stored in file or do you retrieve that from STDIN? - the source format: Is there a delimiter, that seperates both inputs (string and ...

Re: How to close cmd after Programm startet

I'm not familiar with OpenJDK, but if it's similar to the JDK, then there are two executables: One for windows ("javaw.exe") and one for the console window ("java.exe"). If you start the console version, then the console will stay open, because its streams (STDIN, STDOUT and STDERR) are connected wi...

Looks odd, but seems to work, I can't create a file which is fetched by the "?<" expression.
Shouldn't it match any file with no extension,
or does "replace" ignore those undocumented wildcards?

Re: Batch file edit text file

When there are unknown numbers in a particular place, then you either have to get to know those (e.g. using the "for/f"-command), or have to use something that is able to search for structures in strings. So that depends on the source file you want to process; if there's are only a single (or very f...

Re: display time in 12 hr

I don't know about the bug you mentioned, so the following might or might not ne usefull. In my experience a changing offset is caused by the "Set Time Zone Automatically" feature, which is realized by an informed guessing of your current geolocation; see: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/uwp/api/Wi...

I am not familiar with the command line arguments of the tool "ffmpeg".
Do you have a working sample line for a single file?

Re: How to return ascii value in 'bg _Kbd'

The parameter "_Kbd" commands the bg.exe tool to read a character from the input buffer if present, else returns 0.
As this is clearly not what you (back_slash) are looking for, you should follow Steffen's suggestion to use "Kbd" instead.

Re: How to make a custom mouse cursor in batch?

You might hook into an actual process which uses a console window, create a custom subclass overloading the actual "OnSetCursor()" function and replace the actual console instance with its subclass. But I'm pretty sure, that is highly risky, as you have no idea if someone else had the same idea and ...

Re: Why does this run net1.exe?

I rechecked the results for the "netbios.dll"/"n<s" on my system with a path set to the test drectory only: Confirmed not executing "net.exe" in that scenario. (Maybe it's somehow is connected with the fact that i upgraded to win10 prof from win8.1 - but that's a shot into the blue.) Also, since "n<...

"no<<<<<" Launches notepad.exe, but in the top left corner of notepad window the icon does not look like notepad's. Also in the taskbar, the notepad window does not have the notepad icon. I'm betting the icon resource lookup doesn't recognize wildcards. According to "Process Monitor" (link in my fi...

Re: Why does this run net1.exe?

On your system, what is the FIRST file returned from: DIR "%Windir%\System32\n<s.*" If you follow the 5 backtracking steps I showed, does it result in net.EXE ? On my system, the first file returned (of 12 files, including netbios.dll ) in DIR " C:\Windows\System32\n<s.* " is NarratorControlTemplat...

Re: Why does this run net1.exe?

It's likely there's a matching file ending in "4" on your system. Yes, the file "Netwuw04.dll" ends on the character '4'. Applying this to the OP's example (on my system): "n<z" While i agree with most you said, there is a nitpick. I have a file named "netbios.dll" in "C:\Windows\System32". Therefo...

Re: Batch script to rename text files to match image files names.

I am so sorry for making the above error and want to apologize.
I hope the /Y command wasn't preset in the COPYCMD variable,
so your test environment wasn't messed up.
Thanks to Squashman, for finding that error, i literally didn't see that.
I fixed the above code.
