    Talking bat programing

    Ok my question is about how to take user input and use it for the program.
    I am makeing a menu for a dos boot disk.

    Here is a example of what I am trying to do.
    Code:
    @echo off
    :begin
    echo Welcome to chuckie's boot disk
    Echo.
    echo 1. Fdisk        2. Clean1k     3. Delpart     4. Format     5. fdisk
    Echo.
    echo 6. findram     7. move        8. chkdisk     9. debug     10. edit
    Echo.
    echo 11. scandisk 12.sys         13. mscdex 14. ext         15. attrib
    Echo.
    echo 16. restart    17. extract 18. help
    
    echo Select What Program You Would Like To Run..
    (user input) %1
    
    cls
    
    IF %1==1
    Fdisk
    
    IF %1==2
    Clean1k
    
    IF %1==3
    Delpart
    
    ETC...
    
    IF %1==17
    help.bat
    
    goto error
    REM This is for if the enter a incorrect number
    :error
    You did not enter a correct number. Hit any key to try agin
    pause
    cls
    goto begin
    Also is there a way to allow pass commands to the program?

    Example:
    At user promt
    Be able to do like
    4 c: /y
    format c: /y


    Thank you for any help you can give..

    akachuckie,

    What you need is a reference to batch file programming. Can be found here:
    http://www.computerhope.com/batch.htm

    Basically, look up the CHOICE command, it will give you what you need.

    Passing arguments is done like this:

    test.bat arg1 arg2

    in your batch file, arg1 is %1, arg2 is %2, and so on...

    Hope this helps,
    -ik

    Yea thought about the Choice Command. But I really don't have room on the disk for it. It is a external command.

    Is there any other way to do it?

    Well, I guess you could write a small C program that could do the same... I don't know of any other ways using batch files. Try googling it, I know as much as you do at this point...

    I did find this. But all I can do is ECHO %INPUT%
    Code:
    @echo off
    echo BATCH_INPUT___hgQX-PPP_XPPP E#HH0E50EG0Ef0Ehs>myinput.com
    echo myinput.bat hoAX5@@PZYh@xX5@D3!r/P[WX,b,-PZh>>myinput.com
    echo X3!X2ErP,{,{PYX4=0ErWX,j,-PZh@@X3!=set input>>myinput.com
    ECHO.
    ECHO.
    ECHO.
    echo INPUT:
    
    myinput.com
    call myinput.bat
    echo.
    echo.
    del myinput.com
    del myinput.bat
    ECHO %INPUT%
    Any idea's?

    It's not exactly easy, but it can be done. I don't have the time to thoroughly check it out right now, but something like this should help you.
