Batch file opens another batch file - pushing commands into the second file

#1 Post by georgehanna1993 » 25 Aug 2020 07:37

Hey guys,
I have a batch file which opens another batch file,
after opening the second batch file, I need to enter commands in the second one.
what is the right way to do it?

Thanks in advance!

The answer heavily relies on what you might mean with the term "open", some possibilities:
- you called your second batch file, so it actually runs and you want it to change itself while running,
- you have used a for/f-loop using the findstr on your second batch file which length is <= 8192 bytes long,
- you have used a for/f-loop using the findstr on your second batch file which length is > 8192 bytes long,
- you accessed the source of your second batch file with redirection, a for/l-loop and the set/p-command,
- ... .
