how to catch the last level name folder ?

#1 Post by budhax » 26 Jun 2007 10:36

Hello,
Last level folder= folder that have no sub folder.

Here is the script putting links of .URL files (web page shortcut)
in a links.html file,
from the current folder and sub folders.
Url2Htm.bat

Code: Select all

@ECHO OFF
SET z=%~PD0Links.hTM
TYPE NUL>"%z%"
(FOR /F "Tokens=1,2,* Delims=:=" %%a IN ('FINDSTR /s /i /b /c:"URL=" "*.url"') DO (
        ECHO.^&bull; ^<a href="%%c"^>%%~na^</a^> ^<br^>
))>Links.html
Pause



I would add the "last level name folder" before each link.
How to catch the last level name folder in the FOR loop?
Thanks.

budhax,

Dependent on where your .URL file is there might be multiple last level folders under it, not sure if I understand correctly.

Having delayed variable expansion turned on the following code lists all last level folders under folder f:

Code: Select all

SETLOCAL ENABLEDELAYEDEXPANSION 
...
for /f "delims=" %%a in ('"dir /ad /s /b "%f%"|sort /r"') do (
    if "!merker!" NEQ "%%a\" echo."+%%a"
    set "merker=%%~dpa"
)


DOS IT HELP?

Sorry DosItHelp,
In fact, my question was "wrong".
I just would create an HTML file with links based on URL files in the tree folder.
Where the BAT is in the root of this tree.

AND the parent folder name containing a URL file, is added just befor the HTML link.
I found a solution:

Code: Select all

SET z=%~PD0LiNKS.hTM
TYPE NUL>"%z%"
ECHO.^<h1^>Fichiers .URL vers liens HTM^</h1^>>>"%z%"
(
   FOR /F "Tokens=*" %%i IN ('DIR /ad /s /b') DO (
      CD "%%i"
      FOR /F "Tokens=1,2,* Delims=:=" %%a IN ('FINDSTR /i /b /c:"URL=" "*.url"') DO (
         ECHO.%%~ni ^&bull; ^<a href="%%c"^>%%~na^</a^> ^<br^>
      )
      ECHO.^<br/^>
   )
)>>"%z%"


Put this script in the root tree folder structure containing URL files (Web page short cut), and launch it.

The next step to improve this srcipt is:
how to avoid empty HTML line (<br>) for folder that has no URL file?

I tested your script, it works fine (of course ;)) !!

Thanks a lot.

A SPECIAL THANK FOR ALL DOS EXPERTS ON THIS FORUM

budax,

Interesting script you have there :D. It creates some pretty index.
"if exist" should avoid the empty lines. How about this:

Code: Select all

@echo off
SET z=%~PD0LiNKS.hTM
TYPE NUL>"%z%"
ECHO.^<h1^>Fichiers .URL vers liens HTM^</h1^>>>"%z%"
pushd .
(
   FOR /F "Tokens=*" %%i IN ('DIR /ad /s /b') DO (
      if exist "%%i\*.url" (
         CD "%%i"
         ECHO.^<a href="file://%%i"^>%%i^</a^> ^<br^>
         FOR /F "Tokens=1,2,* Delims=:=" %%a IN ('FINDSTR /i /b /c:"URL=" "*.url"') DO (
            ECHO.%%~ni ^&bull; ^<a href="%%c"^>%%~na^</a^> ^<br^>
         )
         ECHO.^<br/^>
      )
   )
)>>"%z%"
popd


or similar:

Code: Select all

@echo off
SET z=%~PD0LiNKS.hTM
TYPE NUL>"%z%"
ECHO.^<h1^>Fichiers .URL vers liens HTM^</h1^>>>"%z%"
(
   FOR /F "Tokens=*" %%i IN ('DIR /ad /s /b') DO (
      if exist "%%i\*.url" (
         ECHO.^<a href="file://%%i"^>%%i^</a^> ^<br^>
         FOR /F "Tokens=2,3,* Delims=:=" %%a IN ('FINDSTR /i /b /c:"URL=" "%%i\*.url"') DO (
            ECHO.%%~ni ^&bull; ^<a href="%%c"^>%%~na^</a^> ^<br^>
         )
         ECHO.^<br/^>
      )
   )
)>>"%z%"
