Batch Files

Post by snapson »

I know some basics about batch files but not much could somebody explain some of the commands to me and tell me how to write a script that would continuously open new command windows until the computer crashes to test the cpu strength

thanx

Heh, not hard. I used to make batch files all the time. Batch files are basically cmd commands in a file.

Code: Select all

@echo off

:loop
start cmd
goto loop
A batch file can be stopped using Ctrl+C.
¯\_(ツ)_/¯ It works on my machine...

Nice code I never consider it this way. Course I don’t code batch file much. This thing ran the hell out of my PC. Nice job

Got any other types of code for batch? I am interested can I count

Code: Select all

For x = 1 to 100 
	Of x = 50 then exit
Next 
Can something like this work?

Peace

FOR-loops work, only the syntax is a little different, here's a command reference:

I am sure it can be done look at the link bad_brain left and from the code you have I figure you can accomplish it simply. I will see if I can manage to get it working on my pc and report in later.

have you even looked at the link I posted?
Syntax
XCOPY source [destination] [options]

Key
source : Pathname for the file(s) to be copied.

destination : Pathname for the new file(s).
