What are batch files and scripts?
Posted on 2000-03-20
In my mind I keep imagining that I'm an expert but I STILL can't seem to figure out just what in the world batch files and scripts are?
I'm to the thinking that I could type out the commands in Windows Notepad and then execute them by clicking on the file? Yes/No?
How is it you run scripts or batch files?
What sort of problems do these solve? Are they the same thing?
I've always wanted to be able to open up the file info for my MP3's and have the Artist field come from the first past of a file, and the Title field to come from the second part of the file because I always name my files in a particular format (Artist Name - Title of Song.mp3) and could I use batch or script or what? (this paragraph need not be answered to receive points but would be appreciated.)
