I'm having trouble figuring out how to get user input in one of my basic batch files, I've looked at various sites and still don't understand, could someone please explain if you have the time. I really want to learn.

yo stupid, I already gave you code on how to do this. Here, I'll leave out all the extra crap, maybe you'll get a clue this time. It's part of a batch file I've made to install a program I've made.

Code:
@ECHO OFF

:MAIN
CLS

ECHO Welcome to the TCP WorkShop Installation setup.
ECHO Here we'll register or unregister the required DLL files.
ECHO.
ECHO Please choose:
ECHO   1 Auto   Install
ECHO   2 Auto   Uninstall
ECHO   3 Expert Install
ECHO   4 Expert Uninstall
ECHO   5 Quit
ECHO.
CHOICE /n /c:12345 "> "

IF ERRORLEVEL 5 GOTO QUIT
IF ERRORLEVEL 4 GOTO EUninstall
IF ERRORLEVEL 3 GOTO EInstall
IF ERRORLEVEL 2 GOTO AUninstall
IF ERRORLEVEL 1 GOTO AInstall

:AInstall
ECHO dumbass pressed 1
pause
GOTO MAIN

:AUninstall
ECHO dumbass pressed 2
pause
GOTO MAIN

:EInstall
ECHO dumbass pressed 3
pause
GOTO MAIN

:EUninstall
ECHO dumbass pressed 4
pause
GOTO MAIN

:QUIT
ECHO dumbass wanted to quit
pause
See that? Put that into a batch file and run it. Can't you figure it out by example?

(required external program: CHOICE.COM. You used to be able to download batch utility files from my website, but since I don't have it up yet, I've opened an FTP server to its download directory:

server: serialcoders.sytes.net:21
location: /Download/DOS/BatUtils.zip)

What type of user input did you want to put into the file? I dont think its a strong enough language to handle variables. The user input in rage's script is in the form of the user making a choice, either 1,2,3,or 4. All other input has to be taken from files or input devices I think I never got to heavy into batch scripting...

"I never got to heavy into batch scripting..."

Then don't speak up.

Batch programming has plenty of variables. Environment variables. I rely on them heavily in certain tasks. Also, you don't have to make a numerical choice from 1 to 5. You can make it a yes/no/cancel choice using the y/n/c characters. Any character you want can be the input.

People has made batch viruses before. It is not as weak as you may think.

I'll let you in on a little secret. I don't get pissed. I've been pissed all of 3 times on this board. once at TRON, a second time at IceDog, and a 3rd time at Caffeine - which comparitively didn't last nearly as long. Of those three, only TRON put me into a true RAGE. It's where I got my name after all.

Everything else is just a moments irritation which I forget about in 5 minutes.

nah, I won't get into this discussion in the newbie forum. I don't really wanna discuss it anyway. It's not important.

I seem to remember a 'phukedklown' somewhere, but I've forgotten all about him. IceDog pissed me off cause of his actions toward me. Caffeine pissed me off with his blind arrogance. TRON pissed me off with a combonation of both.

You've got the right stuff there Gizmo, I agree, you've displayed both to Learner. But mostly, you're not arrogant, it's just conceit like I have. And mostly you don't smack people around unless they deserve it. It's a good thing, don't change.
