I've uploaded my scripts to help workflow to google code, naming the project batch flow
Heres a summary of some of the things you can do.
Go to a directory in the clipboard.
If you have the address bar enabled in explorer:
Copy the location, go to the prompt and enter 'pcd' to go to that folder
Go to the location of a setting in netbeans or eclipse:
Copy the location , go to the prompt and enter 'pcd' to go to the folder (or folder containing the file).
Get the current directory without dragging:
dirsave and dirload let you save named bookmarks.
If you use the alternate shell 4nt
(or the free TCC/LE
) you can use the supplied configuration and aliases to access the bookmark functionality from the keyboard:
In the 4nt or tcc/le prompt enter "option", under the "TCStart/TCExit" path, change the location to the location where batch-flow is installed + "\conf", for instance on my computer batch-flow is installed to c:\usr\batch-flow, so I set it to
Now in new TCC/LE prompts F5-F10 are reserved for directories: Ctrl+Fkey to save, and Alt+Fkey to load. Alt-F12 lists these shortcuts.
Note: Alt-F12 only lists shortcuts on FKeys, to list these and other shortcuts enter dirload /l
batch-flow comes with other handy hotkeys, use 'alias' in TCC/LE to see what they are.
It's annoying after installing a program to have to add it to the path, so there is an 'addpath' command to do this.
This is a more general utility for viewing the registry path, you can list it, validate it, check for the location of files within it.
Also useful is 'regpath /L' which sets the local prompts path to the one in the registry.
Most of the commands have help builtin, which you can access by using the /? option.
