Windows Command Line

Postby reinier maliepaard » Sun Feb 14, 2016 6:37 am


Today I published on an ebook on the Windows Command Line. With its simple syntax, the Windows Command Line offers a lot of interesting ways to automate monotonous and repetitive tasks. Of course, Neobook-applications can run the examples from my ebook with its Run command, invoking 'cmd.exe /c'. Example with Windows REN (or Rename) command:

Code: Select all
SetVar "[CurrentDir]" "[PubDir]"
Run "cmd.exe" " /c REN ?*.txt h*.dat" "Hidden" "" ""

This code does two things:
- with wildcard '?' the first letter of the filename of '.txt' files is changed
- the extension '.txt' is changed into '.dat'

This is nice, isn't it? So, what could you expect of my ebook? More nice and useful code examples than text :D

Go to and type in the Search: Maliepaard Windows Command Line and you will find my ebook.

Have fun!

Best regards,
