      CSCR.BAT                -- An Interface Application to VBS Scripting.
      Extension .BAT or .VBS  -- An Interface Application for a Decompiler. 
                Updated version 
      HELP file construction  -- CSCR and DECOMP batch:
                Both the above tools was in use when writting this chapter.
                Note: Better first read the second paragraph [Extension...]
      WinXP  -- Forget what you heard, DOS batch is working with WindowsXP.
                Equal.bat



Interface application to scripting

  The below batchfile is tested in Win98. It's an inspiration of
  my "newbee/obsolete outdated stuff". The motivation was that I
  saw someone uploaded WSH solutions along with CALL CScript but
  without using the extension EXE.

  Unless Horst Schaeffer ask me to remove my batch file, it will
  remain here. BTW: Option numb 3 below act different, depending
  on whether you have loaded DOSKEY.COM or not loaded that file.

Extension .BAT or .VBS -- [An Interface Application for a Decompiler].

  InputBox "Test to load a helpfile",,,,, "named file.HLP", 5128

The "InputBox" in the VBS language take an argument for a HLP file, so
I just visit a Website named [http://www.helpmaster.com/index.htm] and
downloaded "helpdc21.zip" by Manfred Winterhoff. What I wanted was: to
figure out of any VBS syntax using the HELPDECO decompiler to dissects
a help file. The HELPDECO decompiler dissects HLP files of Windos 3.0,
3.1, 3.11 and 95 and many MVB multi media viewer titles into all files
required for a rebuild using the appropriate help compiler HC30, HC31,
HCP, HCW, HCRTF, WMVC, MMVC or MVC. I just used such decompilers on my
Win98 computer. My motivation/reson is I'm in progress of learning the
VBS language, so I examing that stuff. Since VBS can be used in WinXP;
XP is a declaration by Mickeysooft, so wee can't always use our better
batch solutions named with the extension BAT.

Below is a batch file and it works like this,

1.
If a file is dragged & dropped, then a folder named "%temp%\work\test"
would be created. If that folder already exists, it is left unchanged.

2.
Then a little COM file is created. That ~.COM file is used to grap the
screen from line numb 0...24, which is all the lines. The last section
of the ~.com file is a comment between two percent marks to be ignored
(unless you want to know where I keep the COM source.)

3.
Then the PROMPT is set (to a bit HTML code) which is displayed on CON.

4.
The output from the decompiler goes to "%temp%\work\test\decomp.html".

5.
See number 3 above.

6.
The COM file is now in use. The remaining output of the decompillation
by HELPDECO would be grapped.

7.
If the decompilled HLP file contain a [MAP] section along with numbers
which could be used as the last argument to the VBS/WSH InputBox, then
I want to know.

8.
Forget the above, just use it. All created files goes to ONE folder so
the only thing to remember and to do is, that you can delete any files
from that folder that you don't want to keep.

Benny Pedersen,
ARGHHH: What I better want to show is this 1-2-3, SMART solution:

  For %%f in (xcopy.exe" nul" call cd) do %%f>nul "%temp%.\work\test\"

: 1. Create a folder (if not existing).
: 2. Go drive.
: 3. Go folder.

but I suddenly created An Interface Application for a Decompiler:

HLP file construction

I have just wrote my very first HLP file (9.037 bytes).
Each time when I tried to compile a RTF format into a HLP file I then saw
that NOT two files was identically. The contents was the same but the HLP
files created was different, depending on what button that was pressed to
perform the compiling, hmmm.
When I compiled a HLP file that was decompiled and then compiled again, I
then noticed that the file was different from the previous one but anyhow
with the same contents. That you should now. Moreover I noticed an useful
usage about the decompiler, namely that it can be used to convert a large
picture in a HLP file to the WMF format and that the original RTF file (I
used MS-Word) was compressed from 9.501 bytes to only 2.205 bytes! So, if
you got a RTF file that you want to compress, then make a HLP file & then
decompile it, so, you'll end up with a very small RTF document containing
the same contents as you wrote it. ;-)

The below batch file would simply create "my first HLP file" using Debug.
If you want to create HELP files, then you should learn how to make three
footnotes: #$K. Tips: When working with the RTF file format for HELP file
construction, then select the "Show Foot Notes" from whitin your MS-Word.

Benny Pedersen,
PS. The below MakeHLP.BAT contains 95 lines in 6.317 bytes,
    anyway, the HELP file created is more than 9.000 bytes,

WinXP

Forget what you heard, DOS batch is working under WindowsXP.

I send a VBS solution (yesterday) using DOS batch to the WSH
Group and someone said that it *won't* work under WinXP, so,
I went to the local bank and then into a softwareShop to get
a WindowsXP. I installed it today, (I have other HD) and saw
that the DOS Batch is working.

Benny Pedersen,
PS.: Equal.bat is tested under OS WinNT: XP and in Win9X.
BTW. Some modifications such as: "drag'n'drop" instead of
"drag & drop" was needed (XP don't like the character &).

  Equal.bat  (54 lines).

 Win9X/XP

      Microsoft has changed a lot in Windows NT, so you can't
      get an Exit code returned to the calling batch program.
      So, if we sometimes also want to CALL Equal.bat instead
      of performing two drag & drop each time, modify it like
      this: Prefix line numb 3, 36 and 41 with the following:
        IF NOT %2.==:.    
      Then CALL the Equal.BATch file with a colon (:) used as
      a second argument, like this:

        call Equal.bat file1
        call Equal.bat file2 :
        if not %c%.==. echo NOT Identically.
        if     %c%.==. echo     Identically.
        set c=
