|Thanks tonysathre for the bit of code. I'm just beginning to learn the NT command language and every bit helps. As you suspect, MS-DOS does not support FOR /F, and I needed to do this in MS-DOS.|
STRINGS is a fantastic free program with some very wierd restrictions that I just can't wrap my head around. I can use STRINGS in MS-DOS batch files, but not from the command line. I can use STRINGS from the NT command line (except it won't assign variables) but not in NT batch files. Then there is the ridiculous 110 character restriction which is even more severe in NT.
I probably have a copy of MASM 2.0 for DOS sitting around here somewhere, but wondering if I can use Microsoft MASM 8.0 to assemble the MS-DOS binaries. Any opinions on what can be done to enhance STRINGS.COM are greatly appreciated.
