Re: How to Use FC (File Compare) from the Windows Command Prompt

i fear it's comparing the contents of all files rather than just telling which files exist in folder1 that are missing in folder2. Yes, FC just compares the file contents nothing more. You mean something like this? Honestly I get confused as I'm sure you know this. for %A in (folder1\*) do @if not ...

Re: How to Use FC (File Compare) from the Windows Command Prompt

I downloaded winMerge, it just compared both folder trees in only a few minutes.

It tells me which files exist in one folder but not in the other, which files are identical and which are not.

Re: Help with a Batch Macro

Post the complete code also batch2, I don't like guessing what you are doing. batch1 seems to accept only a single parameter %%1 and %MUSIC% seems to handle also only a single parameter. then batch1.CMD "mySongPath/mySong.MP3" should simply work. You can execute %MUSIC% JazzBeat3 from batch2 in two ...

Re: Get arguments without temporary file

I optimized the code a bit for macronisation, remove labels, findstr. That looks quite good, BUT to remove the findstr after 'doskey /macros' isn't a good idea, as it sets any amount of variables, for each defined macro, and it can even collide with predefined variables like CD/path ... I know, I s...

Re: Get arguments without temporary file

Because (as I said) a name of your script may be t&st.cmd or other toxic symbol and in a path too or blah blah ... As long as you are dealing with characters inside the codepage it works. cmd /S /D /C ^" "t&st.cmd" ^" cmd /S /D /C ^" "t^st.cmd" ^" And try carrets in an argument instead of ampersand...
