Wait, y'all still use them? Wasn't that what AutoIt replaced? :o 

No quick or easy way around some things, especially if you want to display processing etc.

Sometimes it is just better to get AutoIt to run a batch file ... not that I am likely to do that with a batch file than contains a GoTo line.

But usually I am just quickly playing around with a Batch file, testing, before I then build an AutoIt alternative ... and troubleshooting can be easier in a batch.

@seadoggie01 Sometimes it is just more convenient to use a batch script due to the native integration with Windows :)

@Earthshine Bash for *nix is basically what Batch is for Windows. Also, I personally prefer Makefiles and CMake ;)

Naw. I use them to automate MSBUILD and call them with intelligent Scripts and it also gets them out of our source control and builds them from scratch off a tag or branch. much more gracefully and elegant than batch language

If I were an admin the hairs on my neck would be sticking straight up after reading that.

OTOH, as a developer I can only say: Right On!


Code hard, but don’t hard code...

Why? We have super strict security and restricted access based on who you are. Nothing wrong for config management to do authorized builds

Probably misunderstood you.  I thought you were saying that writing batch files evades source control because it “gets them out”.  But now I think you’re saying it “checks them out” of SC.  Sorry ‘bout that!

The hairs went down anyway, on their own :)
