Yes. I often do that, but if you perform a SET /A on a number that starts with 0 (zero) the interpreter interprets it an an Octal number, and could give 'weird' results, to saythe least My way means it doesn't matter but doing it by adding would mean the out put number would be padded, even if the i...

Yes. Probably some kind of limit.

There's probably another way you can do this, what is it exactly that you are trying to do?

I think this might depend on regional settings to make things quick and easy. On my XP box: C:\>echo %date% 25/06/2009 on my win2k box Z:\>echo %date% Thu 25/06/2009 Just extract the name from the output. Other wise some kind of math calcualtion is going to have to be performed. Or just have a separ...

ImageMagick is a fantastic command line program and will give you thousands of operations possible on images. But "identify image.jpg" should out put the required info, just use a for loop to extract the required values. Also, XP has built in functionally (like how explorer can give you de...

not using batch. You would need some kind of gui tool. Unless you can pass the contents of the form as a parameter in the same way the search term is passed to google as a parameter. There are tools to copy text to the clipboard in a batch file so you could get the text 'out' of the batch easily eno...

Use the expansion shortcuts.

if %1 is c:\drivers\audio

then %~pn1 is \drivers\audio
and %~n1 is \audio\

I prefer to make a specific scripts directory . e.g. C:\scripts and add that to my %PATH% environment variable.

Interesting, I definately need to look at this.

I'm trying to write a batch file that will accept either, 1 image, more than one image (upto around a 1000) or a folder, dropped onto the icon.

Will post up some code later.

Cheers

Code: Select all

SET dirAttrib=%attributes:~0,1%
IF %dirAttrib%==d ( ECHO DIR ) ELSE ( ECHO FILE )
PAUSE

Try this.
