Re: bin2enc.cmd - Native .CAB & Self-Extracting Scripts

Thanks for the correction Carlos, I always forget about the non-english aspect of batch files. Corrected the line in the first post, didn't alter the version number.

Re: bin2enc.cmd - Native .CAB & Self-Extracting Scripts

Updated the script, should work nicely on earlier WinNT systems now. Couldn't find a clean link to the MS Cabinet SDK (cabsdk) for Extract.exe, but if you look around you can find it. Otherwise, just endure Extrac32's minimized pop-up. ^_^
Please post if you try it an have any issues.

Re: MakeCab, CertUtil, & Expand... best file embedding?

Great suggestions, and thanks for the info. Sad MakeCab doesn't support QUANTUM, but I'll just keep it simple. ^_^
Updated the script and posted it to the OP.

Re: MakeCab, CertUtil, & Expand... best file embedding?

OK, I think I've finally gotten the MakeCab part correct (cantankerous to say the least). Here's the final script I've begun using: ::------------------------------------------------------------------------------ :: bin2enc.cmd source\folder[\file] [destination\folder] :: :: Generates CAB or self-ex...

Mazing.cmd - A Visual Maze Generator for WinNT

A while back I wrote a small script to replace the command line executable used by a fun little maze game posted here at DosTips. I continued toying with several of the maze generating and solving algorithms found at Think Labyrinth sticking with those that create perfect mazes, which elegantly have...

Re: MakeCab, CertUtil, & Expand... best file embedding?

Thanks for the great sample script! I've played with it for awhile and determined that MakeCab.exe probably isn't the best solution for multiple files/folders. Not only is it difficult and archaic (but manageable), but I fear that it may be incompatible with many modern features like unicode filenam...

Re: For loop doesn't work

$Recycle.Bin is a folder and cannot be removed using the DEL command. Besides, it's also a system folder that you probably don't want to remove.

bin2enc.cmd - Native .CAB & Self-Extracting Scripts

I've decided to place the updated script in the first post. Thanks for the suggestions, Carlos! ^_^ Added commandline options and a brief help. Please suggest better MakeCab settings if anyone knows them. I've spent some time attempting to navigate it's vast myriad of options, but I'm far from knowl...

full support to windows 10, is in the version 3.9. I published a second edition of the version 3.9, called "3.9 se". Thanks for supporting BG so that it remains so very useful, hopefully you may deign to again release a fix if any future windows changes render it ineffective. I've been using it for...

Re: Find recursively (!) all empty dirs below top folder?

Oops, sorry 'bout that. %nullDir% is a fancy 'macro', a small batch routine contained inside a variable so you don't have to issue a CALL command... which happens to be just about the slowest thing in batch. A more complete and useful version looks like this: @ECHO OFF :: define a newline with line ...

Re: BatchGame Sokobox 1.4

I was migrating my current project from BG.EXE v3.0a to v3.9 when I noticed this issue. The FCPrint command for BG v3.9 seems to use the format: columns rows color text... However, the docs for BG v3.9 state: rows columns color text... which is also what all previous versions of BG [Locate rows colu...

Re: BatchGame Sokobox 1.4

When did Win10 compatibility start for BG? I'm currently using a lightly custom BG v3.0a (with Color command from tinyBG included), but don't have access to a Win10 machine. Should I use v3.9 to assure compatibility? Love the FCprint command! Really speeds up the 1-2 punch of Locate+Print. Just did ...

This sounds interesting! Is it faster in this way or does it simply make it more convenient?

Any difference in MODE or CHCP when setting code page?

Just a quick question... is there any difference in using CHCP nnn or MODE CON CP SELECT=yyy when setting code pages? Perhaps one is older or more available, therefore being more compatible?
