Batch File Examples

Password Example

The following batch file can be used to establish a password for running a program. The batch file is named START.BAT and calls the program named CALC.EXE.

@ECHO OFF
IF %1==ExeScript GOTO OK
ECHO WRONG PASSWORD
GOTO END
:OK
ECHO PASSWORD IS ACCEPTED...STARTING
CALC.EXE
:END

Below you'll see the response of the computer to various commands.

First the bad password. At the prompt type START 123.
C:/>
C:/>START 123
C:/>BAD PASSWORD

Now use the correct password. Type the correct command at the prompt.
C:/>
C:/>START ExeScript
C:/>PASSWORD IS ACCEPTED...STARTING

At this point the CALC.EXE program starts.

Backup your .doc files (Windows NT/2000/XP version)

usage: backbat backupdir
where: backupdir is the directory to copy your .doc files

@echo off
if not "%1"=="" goto argsok
echo usage:  %0 backupdir
echo where: backupdir is the directory to copy your .doc files
goto end

:argsok
  setlocal
  set backupdir=%1
  if not exist %backupdir% goto notfile
  echo %backupdir% is a file
  goto end
:notfile
  rem  If the directory does not exist, create it.
  if exist %backupdir%\nul goto skipdir
  md %backupdir%
  if "%errorlevel%"=="0" goto skipdir
  echo Error creating backup directory
  goto end
:skipdir
  rem  Copy each .doc file one at a time.
  rem  Note:  the for loop variable (%%b) must be contain only one letter.
  for %%b in ( *.doc ) do copy %%b %backupdir% > nul
  rem  Use the for loop again to check if each file was copied (since it is
  rem  difficult to run multiple commands in a for loop).
  for %%b in ( *.doc ) do if not exist %backupdir%\%%b echo %%b was not copied
:end
rem  Clean up
endlocal

How to make a time log

In the following example, you can create a time log of when the batch file is loaded or, for example, in the autoexec.bat file when someone logs into a computer.

ECHO. |TIME > TIME
COPY LOG +TIME

An alternate slightly more complicated method that, to our knowledge, cannot be used in Windows NT, Windows 2000 or Windows ME would be the following:

echo @prompt set date=$d$_set time=$t$h$h$h > {a}.bat
%comspec% /e:2048 /c {a}.bat > {b}.bat
for %%v in ({b}.bat del) do call %%v {?}.bat
echo %date% %time% >> log

Another alternative is:

echo. |time |find "current" >> log

For the above batch file to work properly, you must create a file called log by typing "edit log" (without the quotes) and then save and exit the file which will create the file at 0 bytes. If this file is not created or not created properly, you will receive the error message, "Content of destination lost before copy".
