I'd recommend using Autohotkey rather than batch. I'd try it myself but I don't really understand what you want the script to do?
  Do you want just folders copied or all files within, recursively or what?
  GUI?

Another vote for DOS and Powershell -these seem like obvious candidates. Also, why not some UNIX shell -especially a Windows-Unix shell (Is this an oxymoron)?

Found another one for you, called TreeCopy on the linked page below

You're welcome, that's what this site is all about.

That's my first online-kiss, thank you!!!

Of course there could be other solutions out there... Especially one that would copy an existing tree structure.

I hope makenewfolder will help you, I use v2.1 at the moment but he's on version 3 now so I've only just downloaded it to try it anew. It used to work in Explorer or the desktop; I've no idea if it will work in other file managers. Even if it doesn't you could always use Windows Explorer for THAT task.

I have contacted him in the past with some ideas; I hope he's incorporated the best of his users' ideas.

Maybe an AutoIt section would be nice. I'd like to switch from AHK to AutoIt because the syntax seems better to me, but i've been quite lazy. Maybe chatting about it with other people here would help.

I second that. I like Autohotkey but really... two different syntaxes and overlapping functions. Confusing at times but so useful. Love ... hate  ... love ... hate ...

So howsabout AutoIt. Oh go on, you know you want to...

smiley Try my GreenOSD - Shows changing volume and selected keys on screen!

Skrommel

Click below to show the entire script.

Sorry, but the reveal button didn't work from me. However I got the code by Quoting Skrommel's message.

Up to now I've been using Rajat's VolumeOSD and there are only occasional flutterings of Gui weirdness -and I've forgotten what they were. It might be down to either Autohotkey or Windows itself slowing down. I don't know what you mean about Ghost-boxes...

How about Lazarus at http://www.lazarus.freepascal.org/ which is a free open-source (I think) Delphi-type RAD style development suite with freepascal as its command-line heart. Or something like that. Sounds wonderful and I've been meaning to give it a go for yonks.

I'm going to just pay her more attention as I don't have a great deal of that there "money" stuff and she knows it. My "Silver surfer" card (not even a Valentines Day one) always makes her smile, no matter how many times I produce it (not Xmas though).

Having said that I always get her something such as a candy bar as I don't have a death wish Wink
60  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / A better World on: February 09, 2009, 04:50:15 PM
In my quest to make a better world I hazard this suggestion...

How about an offshoot of the site where we suggest new, no... not software, but new ideas for websites. And to kick it off, I'd like to suggest a "campaigners united" website where people list various campaigns they would like help/ support with. This would work at the international, national or local (even building or room) levels. It's my belief that campaigns would work better if campaigners of all sorts shared resources (and best practice) and this would hopefully be one of those. I'm afraid I don't have web-servers and resources to do the idea credit but I wish someone would take the idea and run with it... If someone else hasn't already thought of it.

I think such a site would encourage people to see other successful campaigns and take heart in the sight of so many other people who haven't just rolled over and ACCEPTED IT (whatever it is) but are struggling to improve the situation. Seeing that the folks down the street are also cheesed off about X should make them feel a little more political and a little less apathetic.
61  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: Software to pinpoint the cause of hard-drive activity on: February 07, 2009, 03:38:27 PM
Thank you people. I tried OpenedFilesView by Nirs Sofer (whose stuff is usually really good) but it seemed to miss something in a folder which Windoze wouldn't let me rename. Could have been a file used by hidden rootkit or malware I suppose... This made me wonder why the drive was spinning so often (could be page-file of course). I'll try 'em and see.
62  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Software to pinpoint the cause of hard-drive activity on: February 06, 2009, 05:26:35 PM
Does anybody out there know if there are any programs out there that can pinpoint the cause of hard-drive activity (probably page-file activity come to think of it). Ie. Software to show the name of the file(s) currently being accessed by a given hard drive.

Just as you can get software like DriveGleam that show read or write activity on the hard drive, it strikes me that it would be nice if the actual file being used could be pinpointed. Any such program might need a slow display mode for multiple files or a logging function.

I'm aware that this is probably not a coding-snack but I feel sure that someone somewhere has probably already produced such a tool (if it isn't in XP already).  Does anyone already know the answer?
63  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: Idea: Utility to help suspend laptops on: January 26, 2009, 06:31:32 PM
Sorry, quick post only. Search the forums for my previous post on Wizmo by GRC.com. It has various commands like Nircmd and some of them are dammit variations eg logoff!

After a quick check I don't see any "suspend" command, but check it out anyway, just in case.
64  DonationCoder.com Software / Coding Snacks / Re: Global Hotkey Management on: January 12, 2009, 02:36:17 PM
MerleOne has gone quiet on this one. Have you found a solution? undecided
65  DonationCoder.com Software / Coding Snacks / Re: Global Hotkey Management on: January 12, 2009, 02:33:53 PM
What I mean is that when a key is pressed a processes memory usage might shoot up or a window open... maybe these could be watched by supremely talented programs...
Those heuristics would be too uncertain to go by...

I know, but if you have to know the answer you might be tempted to try watching a process viewer like prcview or process-tamer (I haven't tried this one) and GUESS an answer. So the computer could make a more educated guess (I'm guessing).
66  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: Simple single exe to show/hide to taskbar on: January 06, 2009, 02:30:17 PM
Well I didn't need this, but I tried it; it works and it works well. A zero-byte download (for AHK users) that is transparently safe as opposed to the exe Coeluh plumped for. Leave the file on your desktop and you don't even need to make a shortcut! Go ahead Coeluh, try it. The AutoHotkey download is extremely reusable and flexible; I guarantee you'll need it for another purpose sooner or later.
67  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: reopen recently opened explorer windows, history, MRU on: January 06, 2009, 02:17:30 PM
Doesn't the Skrommel meister have a "gone in 60 seconds" type program with roughly this functionality?

Indeed -- and cleverly hidden away using invisible digital ink in one of my earlier posts in this thread the master's work is subtly alluded to Wink

That stuff works every-time doesn't it! Back to wearing my blind-man shades for me I think... Cool
68  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: reopen recently opened explorer windows, history, MRU on: January 06, 2009, 02:14:37 PM
Also check-out FileBox eXtender by Hyperionics.

70  DonationCoder.com Software / Coding Snacks / Re: Global Hotkey Management on: January 01, 2009, 05:05:57 PM
Would it be possible as a programmer to "try a given hotkey" and see which programs/ processes "respond" to it? Something like FileMon but more like KeyMon?
71  DonationCoder.com Software / Coding Snacks / Re: CHKDSK Assist - Schedule CHKDSK Operations on: January 01, 2009, 05:02:18 PM
I haven't tried it but there are two GUIs for the excellent JKDefrag one of which is ScanDefrag which also enables scheduling of ChkDisk among other things... but I'll try yours soonish...

Do you know of a free-source C++ compiler?

73  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA W/ SOURCE CODE: Auto-Dim LCD Notebook screen to save electric on: December 28, 2008, 02:57:59 PM
I can't promise this will work for you, but I use Wizmo by Steve Gibson software at  http://grc.com. It is command-line but I wrote up a Qsel (Horst Schaefer program) menu for the most useful Wizmo commands and have a hotkey (Ctrl + Alt + W) on a windows shortcut for it.

The menu shortcut uses the wizmo parameters "quiet monoff"...


Ie you could use "path\wizmo.exe quiet monoff"
74  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA W/ SOURCE CODE: Auto-Dim LCD Notebook screen to save electric on: December 22, 2008, 03:25:58 PM
look at what i posted before you give me 3 paragraphs, please.
I'm sorry silekonn, but I too was puzzled by your first post (your flavour of English may not match ours) and I don't think app103 was out-of-line. He was after all trying to help you and went to the trouble of posting links which (as he hinted) was more than anyone else did, so you should go out of your way not to irritate him (or indeed anyone else!)

However, having checked the MSDN link out, it doesn't really seem to have any direct relevance, so I can see where you're coming from. app103 was that really the link you intended to post?
75  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: HTML Organizer/Viewer on: December 22, 2008, 03:17:38 PM
I know this is an OLD post but I'm interested to know if things have moved on since then. Are there other (maybe better programs) out there now? I think I'm after pretty much the same thing, and I can't believe there aren't many others (especially dial-up users) who save web pages en-masse for later off-line attention.
