Advanced programming? Writing batch files would be considered low end scripting.<br />
I think it means advanced for batch...
True, but it was advanced when i was learning it :)
Well I hope you broaden your knowledge and feel free to ask questions. I recommend downloading MS&nbsp;Express Visual Web Developer and experimenting with existing code.<br />
Thanks, I'll check into that.
Thanks for all the fish... did you get that from telnet towel.blinkenlights.nl?
Nooe, got it from hgttg
da reply button did not work. i wrote &quot;:O oh.&quot; not &quot;here.&quot; so, :O oh.
I put the return thingy on my flashdrive with the autorun and tried it on my computer.&nbsp; It didn't work, so I then tried it out on my brother's computer. <br /> <em><strong>Still didn't work.<br /> </strong></em>Why is that?&nbsp; Can anyone tell me?
Not sure what this question is starting from, but most likely the computer has autorun disbled. Any more details?
Would learing batch be a good way to get a step into programing?<br />
Yes, a bit. I would focus on vbs scripting, and that can do more advanced things, then get into python or c++
For some reason, my computer refuses to allow me o use msg. it says &nbsp;that it is not recognised. any idea as to what might be causing this to happen?<br /> thx, ty, or whatever you prefer!&nbsp;
sorry this took so long. Did you type it in &quot;MSG * this is my message&quot;?&nbsp; Sometimes MS-Dos messes up, but it wouldn't let batch files open at all if it did.<br />
strange... it works on xp but not on vista...&nbsp;
what language is this? c , java or other?
neither, a batch file simply displays the text, and waits fir you to press a key to display the next line. Very simple stuff.
Really cool Instructable.
da most koolest thing i ve ever seen
you're really good with this kind of stuff i am just learning and i <em>was</em> really confused but both your tutorials have helped me so much in a very little amount of time. thanks! ; )<br/>
Your welcome, I'm Glad I could help someone :)
I think this is very interesting, but the part were you <strong>make an icon</strong> for the autorun file is <strong>unclear</strong>, can you explain please?<br/>
Umm, i don't think i mentioned an autorun file, I'm not so good with those,and you can't change the file.
Then what`s with the talk about .ini files in your batch file???
I'm not sure, i'll check it.
"Thanks for all the fish" Hehe, a little "Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy" put in there for good measure, I see.
