Batch file help

Posted 22 December 2009 - 06:38 AM

Hello all!

I am trying to create a batch file that can read into an XML document searching for <setting name="BaseDirectory" serializeAs="String"> and replacing the associated value with the arguments received from the user. Example:

<setting name="BaseDirectory" serializeAs="String">
                <value>\\server\folder\subfolder</value>



becomes

<setting name="BaseDirectory" serializeAs="String">
                <value>\\server\folder\NEWsubfolder</value>



as per the input from the user before the script starts. Is this possible or am I dreaming outside the realm of reason once again? Thanks for the input and the help!

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

I think you're going to need to do XPath to do what you want, and I'm not sure how you could do that in batch. It looks like you could step up to the next level of batch, PowerShell, and do it though: http://thepowershell...powershell.aspx
