Re: Using environment variables with replaceable parameters

Oh you didn't mention that you wanted to enumerate all of your R... variables. So yes FOR /L is the right loop for this task. Steffen I'd say no, that iterates a compound variable name. To enumerate an unknown number of variables starting with the letter R I suggest for /f "tokens=1*delims==&q...

Re: self-compiled .net hybrids

Nice one npocmaka,

1. why do you call msbuild.exe?
2. are there remnant files from the build, if yes where are they located?

Wish you a happy new year.

Re: Printing the last file name in each sub directory

Just made a comparison between batch and powershell on this Batch took me about 10 min: :: Get "Last" files from all subfolders of %CD% @Echo off&SetLocal EnableExtensions EnableDelayedExpansion Set "Cnt=100" :: clear vars For /f "delims==" %%A in ('Set Last 2^>Nul'...

Re: HASHSUM.BAT - emulate md5sum, shasum, and the like, using pure batch

This was a nice riddle (thx @LotPings): You get different results, when removing the last newline string (carriage return and newline character == "\r\n") from File HashSum.bat. It seems using redirected and piped input both add an unwanted newline: penpen Thanks for your detective work W...

Re: HASHSUM.BAT - emulate md5sum, shasum, and the like, using pure batch

Hello Dave, I just discovered that I get different results when doing > HashSum.bat /a MD5 HashSum.bat 360063b6d87eb8b703629bd70f522e4d *HashSum.bat vs > HashSum.bat /a MD5 <HashSum.bat 2a203dd0b31196f4b43c12ddea06f6f1 Did the latter to get just the hash no file information

Re: Call label from other batch file

That's a clever trick with a caret line continuation char to have the call using it's self label and args.

Re: Call label from other batch file

Just curious, what would be the purpose of calling a label from another bat? Why not just include it in current bat? Is the concern you'd prefer not to repeat code? Thanks, I'm just a stupid guy trying to learn! Yes one benefit is space saving, but there is more. Even if copied to the actual batch,...

Re: Call label from other batch file

Just to mention it, the behaviour and possible use as a batchlibrary is at least 11 years old. In the newsgroup alt.msdos.batch.nt is a thread (with foxidrive R.I.P. taking part) describing this. Since then I'm actively using it. THe bug/feature is constantly supported by all windows versions up to ...

Re: Insert a space between every character in a given string?

Hello cornbeetle, if you take char by char from the beginning until at end of the string you don't need to know the length. You may count while looping. @Echo off set num=2212221 echo "%num%" Set numtemp=%num% Set "num=" :loop Set "num=%num% %numtemp:~0,1%" Set "nu...
