Re: Alignment using batchscript

plasma33,

Here is a longest-common-sequence implementation http://www.dostips.com/?t=Experimental.StringDiff as a starting point.
It could be improved and converted to a function.

Re: FOR LOOP Variable setting as %C - how to solve?

Hey SIMMS7400, It is possible you want tokens= 1, 2* ? Also last line did you mean SET "C=_ %%C " ? FOR /F "tokens=1,2* delims=_" %%A IN ("%~n0") DO ( IF ["%%A"] NEQ [""] SET "A=%%A" IF ["%%B"] NEQ [""] SET "B=_%%B&...

Re: [How to] dec to hex and hex to dec conversion bat

Voodooman,
Nice trick using %=exitcode% variable.

Wanted to mention that dostips also lists two functions for converting hex to dec and dec to hex:

Re: Bug in "removing a substring using string substitution"

Yes - the command interpreter allows for simple string substitution not necessarily word substitution. You think this example doesn't get the point across? If someone want's to propose a better example for string substitution then I would consider it for inclusion. Note: vbscript comes installed by ...

Re: Does string1 begin with string2 bug or is it just me?

The double quotes are trouble. 5th character of string1 is not a double quote. this should work: set string1="test"ing set string2="test" or this: set "string1=testing" set "string2=test" or this: set string1=testing set string2=test or even this set "str...

Re: A Critique on "Trim Quotes - Remove surrounding quotes"

"safely remove double quotes surrounding a string" was meant to mean surrounding the whole string, not counting double quotes within the string.
Any suggestions on how to formulate this better are welcome.

Re: So, I am confused by this sort routine

Ok, I see what you mean. This has been fixed now, character position starts with 1 now and not with 0.
Thanks a lot for pointing this out!

Re: So, I am confused by this sort routine

"Specifies the character number, n, to begin each comparison." means that n=4 indicates that each comparison should begin at the 4th character in each line. Adding a space after the 4th character should clarify: abc1 0def3 <== 0 abc9 00def4 <== 0 results from 00, 4 is greater than 3 abc2 9...

Re: Enhanced toHex function

dbenham, Very good! Inspired by your post the :toHex function has been made more efficient and now handles negative numbers. I preferred the leading zeros option and so the new implementation is a bit different than you suggested. Many thanks for your input! http://www.dostips.com/DtCodeCmdLib.php#F...
