M3talinks For 03/25/2011

  • I think everyone agrees that DOS batch scripting is lame. Nonetheless there are many situations where it is expedient, or you must maintain existing scripts.

    Guidelines:

    One feature per answer
    Give both a short description of the feature and an example, not just a link to documentation
    Limit answers to native funtionality, i.e., does not require additional software, like the Windows Resource Kit
    Clarification: We refer here to scripts that are processed by cmd.exe, which is the default on WinNT variants.
