Making Automatic Copies of Log Files in TeraTerm

Recommended Posts


Hi all,

I have been working on some automatic logging of some wireless devices using TeraTerm. I'm basically pinging a few satellites in a mesh network system and detecting when the ping drops, using a batch script. Whenever it drops, I open a TeraTerm window, connect it to Telnet, send some commands, and save the outputs of those commands to a log text file. However, my script is currently overwriting the previous log file every time ping fails (i.e. every time I trigger the TeraTerm macro). I want to know if there is a way, possibly using TeraTerm syntax, for me to check if a log file with a certain name "log.txt" already exists, then generate a new log file, say "log-1.txt", "log-2.txt", etc. if it does, so that I don't overwrite the results of each trial. Any help would be much appreciated.
