Re: Checking for several different strings in a variable


I'm not sure how to use this... can I call it from a batch script? Either way, thanks for the effort :)


save as a file and on command line

Code: Select all

cscript //nolog myscript.vbs myFileToSearch.txt

Re: Batch Wake-On-Lan

No, you misunderstood me. Is there any way you can send WOL packets through batch without third-party software? To send WOL packets programmatically you need the UDP protocol and for that you need to program using a language that support the UDP packet programming. If you really cannot use any othe...

Re: Insert text into column b csv file

Ok... I did not understand, does this script need to be inserted before the current commands are run? I guess I am not understanding this script. When I execute it as a batch file I get several errors... Could you give me a little example of how I should be using this. Thank you very much for your ...

Re: Insert text into column b csv file

Use something better to process files instead of batch.. If you want native solution, you can use vbscript (or powershell), Set objFS = CreateObject( "Scripting.FileSystemObject" ) strFile = WScript.Arguments(0) Set objFile = objFS.OpenTextFile(strFile) Do Until objFile.AtEndOfStream strLi...
