I am not a windows guy and I need to convert the following script to windows batch.


LOCKFILE=/tmp/$LOCKFILE
case "$1" in
start)
    touch $LOCKFILE
    poweron.sh;;
    exit 0;
stop)
    rm $LOCKFILE  
    poweroff.sh;;
    exit 0;
    ;;
monitor)
    if [ -a $LOCKFILE ]
    then
        exit 110
    else
        exit 100
    fi ;;
*)
    echo "Usage: $0 {start|stop|monitor} lock_file
    exit 1
    ;;
esac

What you posted just looks like an init script for two other scripts.

What does poweron.sh and poweroff.sh do?

Here is a smiple perl script. How do I do it in windows batch?


$LockFile = "C:\\scripts\\filename.id";

if (-f "$LockFile") {
      exit(500);

}

I would recommend not even looking at batch files and going right for a powershell or vbs script.

A rough untested conversion might be:
$LOCKFILE=$args[1]
switch ($args[0]) {
    "start" {
        set-content -Path ($LOCKFILE) -Value ($null)
        ./poweron.ps1
    }
    "stop" {
        Remove-Item $LOCKFILE   
        ./poweroff.ps1
    }
    "monitor" {
        if (Test-Path $LOCKFILE ) {
            exit 110
        }
        else {
            exit 100
        }
    }
    default {
        "Usage: $0 {start|stop|monitor} lock_file
        exit 1
    }
}

Open in new window



What context does the script run?  It looks as slightwv says as being an init script.

The -f just checks if a file exists and takes appropriate action.  In the case of the code you posted, it exits with a different return value.

To check if a file exists in a BAT file, it is almost as simple.

An example of this can be found on Microsoft's site at:

None of this will really help unless you answer the question I asked in the first post:
What does poweron.sh and poweroff.sh do?

These seem to be the important pieces to the script you posted.
