Hello,

Writing short MS DOS batch (.bat) file for Windows XP and need to test result of NET USE.

Here's the pseudo-code of what I'd like to do...
NET USE | FIND "LPT2" --> Put Result Into LPT2-OK variable
IF LPT2-OK is TRUE
   THEN Issue Command
   ELSE Issue Another Command
What bat code would accomplish this?

Thanks,
Jason
