Re: %MM% - a full-featured WinNT math macro

The two main posters have me awed. My compliments! If I understand correctly, the name of the script that creates the macro variable %MM% is of little importance. I observed that it uses no input arguments and that to set up the macro, a minimum of two console interactions are needed after the macro...

I do this:

Code: Select all

FindRepl "D:\\1" /S:=D:\1;D:\2; >NUL
. . .
The %errorlevel% are always 0, is it right?
Walk before running. Perhaps it would be easier to correlate the errorlevel with the results if you did not suppress them. Get rid of >NUL and you can see for yourself if there was output.

I am having a problem with using the /R switch. I expected only one record to be displayed, but I get them all. Did I not interpret your instructions correctly?

Re: Team schedules using a FindREPl hack

. . . I am glad to see that my work is useful. :D Thanks again and it was so useful that I applied the process to a different kind of input to feed a similar back-end. Instead of a PDF file, I visit a web page, perform a 'Select All' and copy to the Windows clipboard and use Steffen's paste VBS uti...

Re: Extract file name with largest suffix

This seems to work on your test file:

Code: Select all

@ECHO OFF&SETLOCAL 
>sortfile.txt      FINDSTR /c:"outbox/logs/Client_" file.txt
Sort /R sortfile.txt /O sortfile.txt
SET /P <sortfile.txt "MAXFILE="
ECHO file is : %MAXFILE%
pause
with the simplest assumptions about the real data.

Re: Working with the limitations of CmdFont

Unfortunately the used API functions don't return the character width for fonts other than Terminal (raster font). That's the reason why I only output the height in that case. Wonderful. So we have Raster font support for 'CmdFont set' and pretty good results for 'CmdFont get' with quite usable out...
