Re: %MM% v0.2a - a full-featured WinNT math macro

Hi everyone! Using the ideas from the thread https://www.dostips.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=9872 , I propose an edition for the source code of %MM%: :: %MM% is a WinNT batch macro that performs mathematical and relational :: operations on large integers and decimals. It will accept either numeral...

Re: color based on file extension

Of course there are no single way on where to put the IF command. I think the "basic" (and not the shortest code) way is to have a separate pseudo-array for file extensions: ( Note: I did not test this, and please remove the "<-- Addition #N" in your actual code) ... set Index=1 for %%i in (Mods\*) ...

Re: out to screen and file

Hmm... I'm no expert, but I think you need to "duplicate" your commands like the yourcode label below. The ECHO is easy, but the SET/P is a bit complicated, just so that what you see in CMD is basically what you see at file output (in this case, file.txt). @echo off rem 5 is arbitrary (but do not us...

Re: On "color" command and errorlevel

However more versatility can be achieved be defining a seperate variable for the error return as used in my findstr colorprint macro ... @T3RRY I just realized that this is macro, not that usual call "function," so yeah... I think I will just use a separate variable for error number as well. A very...

Re: On "color" command and errorlevel

Errorlevel can be forced using call and parentheses. Errorlevel 1 (Call) Errorlevel 0 (Call ) I just tested this, and I just found out that (call ) (with space) is a very tiny bit slower than (call) , but the color command without parameter is obviously slow, while color 00 is fast. This makes the ...

On "color" command and errorlevel

Today I revisited the amazing %mm% macro , and I had a comment there that it errors out when the Batch file is opened by clicking (unlike when opened in CMD). Upon debugging, I realized that the "bug" is on the COLOR command which is used to set the errorlevel. Example: @echo off color 00 echo(%erro...

Re: Batch file macro and SNAKE.BAT

the parenthesis are necessary in macros, when you want to use the %\n% for multiple lines. That's because a raw line feed outside parenthesis stops the parser and the remaining stuff will be dropped. From the quote, I just found out the answer to my question now (~10 days since asking :oops:). Upon...

Batch file macro and SNAKE.BAT

I am new to batch macros and researching topics here in DosTips. I am aware of Macros with parameters appended and it's awesome, but I am specifically trying to implement macros that have no parameters, just manipulate variables and/or echo something, etc. Shown below is my test: @echo off setlocal ...

Re: Bat file to create another bat file.

Mount the network drive first like this: (you can change X: to any unused drive letter)

Code: Select all

net use X: "\\192.168.168.7\9xAddons"
Then copy files to/from the drive letter:

Code: Select all

xcopy /y /f "X:\Macrium\ReflectDLHF.exe"
After copying, unmount the network drive using this:

Code: Select all

net use X: /delete

Hello! First of all, I did not try to understand the code :lol: . Sorry . Upon entering for /? in CMD, you get this part: In addition, substitution of FOR variable references has been enhanced.

Re: %MM% v0.2a - a full-featured WinNT math macro

Hello! Impressive work! Maybe this was already addressed. When I open the script from CMD, the nth root works. However, when I open the script from clicking, it aborts. Finding 2th root of 10 to 4 decimals starting at 3 guess=(((2-1)*3)+(10/3$(2-1)))/2 guess#1=3.1666 guess#2=3.1622 guess#3=3.1622 Er...

Re: Batch Folders

See the code (I dont know how to properly start this reply!). The rem commands are comments for understanding the code, so you can remove them. I assume that this batch file is on the "projects" folder. @echo off set /p "id=Enter Project Name: " rem New code... :newcode set /p "lev=Level: " rem Inpu...

Re: Deleting folders

Apparently, rd/rmdir doesn't support wildcards. Change the problematic line with this instead:

Code: Select all

for /d %%x in ("E:\Dmgr01\wstemp\anonymous*") do rmdir "%%x"
Wherein for /d allows you to loop through directories. Here's a link for more information: https://ss64.com/nt/for_d.html

Re: JREPL Usage - working but is this correct?

Well you can combine the two JREPL calls into one (the pipe character | means something like "or").

Code: Select all

CD /D "%~dp0"
call jrepl ",,|,$" "" /F "Test.csv" /O -
