Re: Creating a folder with today's date

So the other option is to use WMIC to get the date and time because it always outputs in the same format on all computers regardless of region settings. I get, "please wait while WMIC is being installed." when I run it for the first time. This is a bummer, when a users selects WMIC to be installed ...

Re: How to cut off some blocks off the entire file then save into separated file

You could use findstr which does support regular expressions Echo.Hello There |findstr ".*Th?r?" But you should usually try to avoid findstr because this slows down significantly. With the faster set you can cut off the start of a variable set "$=Hello There" set "$=%$:* =%"%= strip off 'Hello ' =% ...

You possibly could use findstr as a workaround:
good idea

Code: Select all

@echo off

set "file=*.cmd"
set "rExp=.*\\.*\.cmd"

setlocal disableDelayedExpansion
for /R "%~dp0" %%? in ("*.*") do echo(%%?|findstr.EXE /I "^%rExp%$"

Re: CSV.BAT - CSV file manipulation with SQL syntax

why don't you use SQL scripts to create, manage, convert update or delete databases ?

Can your SQL program not do that ?

Re: How to cut off some blocks off the entire file then save into separated file

I downloaded your sample, and I notice the file is using LF as line terminator but dos expects CRLF. So the lines are never terminated and cause the variable to overflow as it can only hold 8kb and your input is 12kb which I believe explains the data getting lost. Then this 8kb is treated as a sing...
