  • Batch certainly sucks, it even has two(!) incomplete sets of escaping rules.

    So instead of that complete and utter mess, why not use Windows Scripting Host []? That sounds a lot easier.

      A very long ago, when I needed to automate things and didn't know .net/perl/python I was using WSH (via its javascript), and I must say it sucks even more. Especially since windowed/console mode is a global setting, plus it had some funny glitches in child processes execution. So, batch files are much better.
