Greetings all -
I'm in a quandry here... I'm not sure how to deal with this.
I've got a textual search and replace command that takes this syntax:
searchandreplace [find string] [replace with string] [filename]
My problem is that the [find string] I want to specify has a copyright symbol in it (the ASCII version, not the textual (C) version).
My issue is that when I cut and paste the command from my batch file onto the command line and run it, the copyright symbol works. If I run the command from a batch file, it shows up as a goofy other symbol when executed. I"m assuming this has something to do with the way the Windows command shell (cmd) parses the line of the batch file.
How would I properly put the copyright symbol in the batch file code? Is there a way to do that?
"Copyright [some code here for the symbol] 2007, Yada yada"
Using the ALT-[symbol number] trick doesn't work. When I execute the batch file, it still doesn't show up properly. However, if I cut and paste that line onto the command prompt, it works fine.
