parameter file sent to a batch file

#1 Post by titicarata » 31 Jan 2017 05:15

Lets asume I have one folder that keeps logs from last 31 days
I need to create a batch file for archiving daily logs (log files like "day01.log", "Day02.log", ..."Day31.log", "End01.log", "End02.log", ..."End31.log", "Start01.log", "Start02.log", ..."Start31.log"
I don't need to archive daily, but sometimes I need to archive logs from day 07 up to day 11, or from 25 to 26.
I want to pass a file parameter name to a batch file. In this parameter file I want to include something like *10.log, *11.log, *12.log for extracting and archiving all logs from days 10 to 12 of the month.
In my situation, the batch file should remain unchanged, the parameter file name should remain unchanged, only the parameter file content.

Thank you,

All batch files have implicit variables starting with %1. Variables are after the batch name on the command line.
