Echo'ing CLI

4 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hey there, been a long time since last post.

I'm trying to create a little commandline interface program, and for example when I type test.exe /? he needs to show me all the switches

Run(@comspec & " /c echo here the text","",@sw_hide)

I tried that thing, but when I try to run my app, I don't get returned anything?!

Btw, I'm using WinXP Pro

(so I don't need to know how to detect the switches, only to echo something)

grtz

Something like this?

Run(@comspec & " /k echo some text here")

The k switch keeps the window open (the c would close it right away after the echo, which is rather pointless.) Also, don't use the hide flag unless you want the window to be hidden from the user.

That code will print it to a file for viewing there, but I think the original question was how to display some information in a dos prompt similar to what you get in windows when you type "command /?" Also, the code shouldn't require the extra paramaters if they are blank on the end. Lastly, why use the k switch to the Command Interperter if you are dumping it to a file anyway? It will just keep an empty dos prompt open (since it will echo to the file, not the screen.)
