PDQ Library:  Batch Programs

You must already know how to use batch commands to use this page. I accept
no responsibility for any accidents you have using batch commands.

Batch programs can do many operations easily to save you time. Here is a simple Batch file called Ping.bat that tests a domain patdrummond.org three times to see if it's working:

@ECHO off
ECHO Ping.bat - test patdrummond.org
ping patdrummond.org -n 3
