Re: Display first/last N lines from file

depends on whether you can use tools especially designed for this purpose.
If you can, then you can try using tail /head.

Re: Removing second last line from multiple text files

Your title says you want to remove the 2nd last line, but your code removes the last line. I'm assuming your code is correct. This is a simple and efficient solution using the new JREPL.BAT @echo off for /f "eol=: delims=" %%F in ('dir /b *.txt') do ( call jrepl "^.*\n(?=[\s\S])"...

Re: JSORT.BAT - Case sensitive sort with option for numeric

Remove that hybrid and do everything in jscript or vbscript. running in one process is better than spawning different processes.

Re: JSORT.BAT - Case sensitive sort with option for numeric

Not forgetting that modern Windows also comes with Powershell installed by default. I am sure one could also use that power for sorting. m The other main point of JSORT is that it is a hybrid BATCH/Jscript. Hard to do that with powershell. There is a running thread about that topic. Why would power...

Re: JSORT.BAT - Case sensitive sort with option for numeric

applaud your effort in creating a "native" solution to sort, however, a compiled tool is always "faster" than a script engine. There's a GNU win32 sort in http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/packages/coreutils.htm, also, windows have sort as well..

It just seems like you could so.... Here I am researching UNIX equivalents to DOS (e.g., GRE...
