Batch

to start off there is the @echo off/on
and there is echo
and pause

so here is an example

Quote:@echo off
echo Hello This is a test
pause

type this in notepad and save as test.bat
launch it
it will look like this

Quote:Hello This is a test
Press any key to continue…

Again open notepad and write:

Quote:@echo on
echo Hello This is a test
pause

and save it on the desktop as test2.bat
launch it , it will look like this
>

Quote:C:\Documents and Settings\User\Desktop>echo Hello This is a test
Hello This is a test
C:\Documents and Settings\User\Desktop>pause
Press any key to continue

So for the explanation
@echo off/on:
if you put @echo on it will show the directory as you just saw
if you put @echo off it will just show the words with no directories
so its best to use @echo off

echo:
If you want to type a simple phrase just type in echo and something in this case echo Hello This is a test
which will show Hello This is a test

pause
pause will pause the batch file,if you press a key the batch will continue in this case it will exit because there is no more left
so try this

Quote:@echo off
echo Hello This is a test
pause
echo I am testing pause
pause

This will show

Quote:Hello This is a test
Press Any Key To Continue…
(when you press a key it will show)
I am testing a pause
Press Any key to continue..

so that convers the pause command

Now some more commands
there is msg *
and there is cls

open notepad and write:

Quote:@echo off
echo Hello This is a test
pause
cls
echo I am testing pause
msg * The End
pause

and save as test3.bat

This will show

Quote:Hello This is a test
Press Any Key To Continue…
(when you press a key it will show)
cls
(the page will clear)
I am testing a pause
(a pop-up will show saying The End)
Press Any key to continue..

So .. cls will just clear the screen
and msg * will bring up a pop-up:D

other commands are REM and goto and start
so create a folder name it Test
put any picture inside and name it testpic
open notepad and type

Quote:@echo off
echo Testing start and rem
rem title Test
start testpic.jpg (or any other extension)
pause

and save it inside the new folder as test4.bat

launch it , it will show:

Quote:Testing start and rem
Press Any Key To Continue
(and the picture will launch)

so start will launch any file
and rem is a remark.. which wont show in the bat file when running

now the goto and set and if

type this inside notepad

Quote:@echo off
echo This is a test
echo If you want to do math type 1 and press enter
echo If you want to see a picture type 2 and press enter
set /p option=
if ‘%option%’==’1’ goto :math
if ‘%option%’==’2’ start testpic.jpg (or any extension)

:math
echo 2+2
pause

and save it inside the new folder

this will show

Quote:This is a test
If you want to do math type 1 and press enter
if you want to see a picture type 2 and press enter
(here you can type 1 or 2 and press enter)
(if you press 2 and Enter the picture will load)
(if you press 1 and enter this will show up):
2+2
Press any key to continue…

so goto will go to a Label or a Part of the file
when you put :Math
a new label will be named Math and when you put goto :math
the batch will go to :math

set
the set option will set somethingđŸ˜€.. here its going to set :choice
the set is , in some options followed by if
so if I type 1 in this example
the “choice” will be 1 .. and it will go to :math because we put
if ‘%choice%’==’1’ goto :math
so if we put 1 the choice will be 1 therefore it will goto :math

about call,exit,and SHIFT?

go into notepad and type this

Quote:@echo off
echo yay me i know the basics of batch
call call.bat
pause
exit

and save in a new folder:)

then open note pad and type this again

Quote:@echo off
echo I Love S*X
pause

and save in the same folder that you save the last one… and name it call.bat

launch the first one
this will show

Quote:yay me i know the basics of batch
I Love S*X
Press Any Key To Continue….
(when you press a key the below will appear)
Press Any Key To Continue…
and when you press a key it will exit

ok.. so now you know what exit does.. it exits the file Imao
and call ,calls in another batch file!!..
so now for SHIFT which is a little hard so try to understand

SHIFT [/n]

If Command Extensions are enabled the SHIFT command supports the /n switch which tells the command to start shifting at the nth argument, where n euh.. can be between zero and eight.
just like this 1 below

SHIFT /2

would shift %3 to %2, %4 to %3, etc. and leave %0 and %1 ..euh.. how can i say it.. .:S.. unaffected yea thats the word .

Examples

the below has got to be saved as .bat.. so just name it test:)

@ECHO OFF
ECHO – %1
SHIFT
ECHO – %1

After creating the above example test.bat file, if you were to type the below command at the MS-DOS prompt, it would print “- ONE” and then “- TWO”; this command is commonly used to work through each of the command extensions or remove command extensions.
(SHIFT , i mean the explanation… i got it from a website and edited it)

Ok I hope you understand
