Re: Simple batch Cryptography: howto crypt / decrypt ROT13:

It works but the caveats apply. Upon closer examination, I think a function miiight be able to interpret when " occurs and escape the necessary characters, resolving this DOS problem... unless the problem defeats the solution as well, lol. It would also have to compensate ^ based on presence of...

Re: Simple batch Cryptography: howto crypt / decrypt ROT13:

As a follow-up, here is a more robust encryptor that I mentioned in the previous post. The same caveats apply, except under caveat 1, ^ also needs to be escaped ^^ in a variable (but again, not from user input/text file). Clearly it has something to do with the different process below. A new caveat ...

Re: Simple batch Cryptography: howto crypt / decrypt ROT13:

Ok I don't know what you guys have done exactly, I'm not going to read it all, but this is my solution. This will be my first encryptor, I wrote this based on a concatenator I wrote yesterday for extracting in order, all numbers within a string (with some other features but it's irrelevant). If this...

Re: In-Depth Error Handling

Thanks aGerman, I thought you would reply. I just spent a few hours doing tests with special characters. I would blame myself for not realizing this, but I found out why you put quotes around the text following set. I've never seen written ANYWHERE in DOS tutorials that this is how you read special ...

In-Depth Error Handling

I would like to know more about batch error handling, if there's anything I don't know. Edit: I'm dealing only with tools installed with the OS from Windows XP, so no "choice" or anything, just basic DOS batch. Are there any caveats to using logical OR || after a command for generic error ...

Is it possible to pipe an output to a for loop?

Hi guys, new here. 8)

For example, I have this here:

dir >dir.txt
for /f "tokens=5" %%a in (dir.txt) do @echo %%a


...but I'd like to do this if I can:

dir | for /f "tokens=5" %%a in (output of dir) do @echo %%a


Thanks for your help.
