|I'm not simply after a book about the operating systems with a simple command set, I'm after a book about command line commands that can be used for creating batch files.|
Do you know the names of maybe one or two books that covers everything there is to know about a command line process and associated commands? If so, what are the names of the books? That's all I'm after is the names. Saves the hassle of researching online or wandering through a bookstore perusing books to see if they have what I'm after. That's why I asked the question.
I spent way too much time searching on Microsoft's site for this info, only to discover this site, which obviously contains questions from many others that lucky for us, Mechanix2Go can answer.
I'm not interested in manually launching a command window. It's a lot easier to create a mechanized solution with batch files that will meet our needs. Manually spawning a command process was never part of the problem other than us wanting to avoid it by using batch files.
Regarding MySQL, yes, I realize it's started as a service. I used it as an example for several things we do where we would like the cmd window to stay open once a process stops, but was launched by a bat file. MySQL, Ruby, Rails, etc., are just some of the apps we use where we want to use batch files for ease of use.
