Date and Time in names

#4
It would depend on your desired format for the date and time, of course. Perhaps something like this would work for you?

Code:
ren me.txt "%_isodate %@replace[:,.,%_time] me.txt"
Charles, I was setting up a btm file for this, and put the "setdos /y1" at the beginning -- and got an error.

Wasn't/isn't that the command to have it single-step through the batch file?

Regards,
Chuck

Another alternative is %_datetime; benefit: no embedded spaces in name (but
it leaves it without punctuations).

My own scheme normally uses the file's timestamp:

ren me.txt "%@replace[-,,%@filedate[me.txt,4]]
%@replace[:.,-,%@filetime[me.txt,w,s] me.txt"

When I import photographs, I always use the file's date and time (or - when
available - the date and time the picture was taken, extracted from the EXIF
data). I do use the seconds element of time, since more than one picture can
be taken withing a minute.

Steve, and what of the "setdos/y1"? Isn't that available in v0? 'cause I get an error using it.

setdos /y1 is obsolete. You need to use the new BDEBUGGER command.

Don't embed the command within your batch script. If you desire to debug
your batch script then invoke the batch debugger with the script you wish
to debug.

E.g.

BDEBUGGER foo.btm

It is a much more powerful and robust debug environment than single
stepping.

Steve,

What program do you use to extract the EXIF data?
