  4. Get a command line text editor like sed and learn to use it:

    Code:
    sed s/"%%use_choice%%"/"rem %%use_choice%%"/ input.txt >output.txt

    exactly I don't know for what reasons I cannot but if I try this but suppose a bbb.txt file locate in v:\autogen and simply containing this text:

    Code:
    %use_choice%
    If I manually execute from CMD this:

    Code:
    v:\automazioneclip\system\sed\sed.exe -i "s/%use_choice%/rem %use_choice%/g" v:\AutoGen\bbb.bat
    supposing sed.exe locate in v:\automazioneclip\system\sed\ (but nothing change also if located in v:\AutoGen or other folders)

    it works (the bbb.txt file is overwrite but becomes rem %use_choice%)

    But I need to work already inside a batch, so for example:

    when I have a simple.bat file that contain:

    Code:
    v:\automazioneclip\system\sed\sed.exe -i "s/%use_choice%/rem %use_choice%/g" v:\AutoGen\bbb.bat
    and I launch it as. bat ... it don't works

    the same commandline out of a batch, strangely don't works


    probably inside a batch the % % expression is referred alwais to a variable

  10. The percent sign in a batch file has a meaning, it's not just a text character. If you want a literal percent sign you have to "escape" it, %%, just like in my earlier post.

  11. Code:
    v:\automazioneclip\system\sed\sed.exe -i "s/%%use_choice%%/rem %%use_choice%%/g" v:\AutoGen\bbb.bat




    just use a text editor to do the replacement .https://notepad-plus-plus.org/
