  6. loading the file in a textf wditor like notepad++ and doing the search and replace is the easiest .

    So how does it look like in batch script? In PS it looks like so:

    Code:
    Desktop> (gc .\cats.txt -raw) -replace '   %use_choice% /C:12 /T:1,%timeout% /M:msg " PANPOT AUDIO "\r\n', ''
    Hi cats
    
    
    la bla bla

  8. cli may have problems since text have percent sogns andquotation marks.. so match may work or not..since dos interprets them as somrhing else..

    you may need to escape a lot of these literals

    I don't know how to do it because I never learned batch scripts as I always found it too cryptic and too limited, mkvtoolnix seem to use ^ all over the place and I really never understood why it is doing it because I didn't need a single time in my whole life I think, I know some basic cmd stuff but nothing advanced, staxrip actually runs cmd because encoders use piping, it uses cmd by passing commands on the command line, it does not use batch scripts because unicode in batch scripts work only in win 10 and it's difficult to do from code, also batch scripts are not needed, command line is sufficient. What I don't get is how popular batch script still is considering how bad it is compared to powershell (exist way over a decade) and also compared to bash (which can also be used on windows I think). What I do understand is powershell is by no means easy to master, even for somebody like me doing .NET coding since day one. I learned about powershell in small bits over the years, learned a few things about the command line from working on staxrip and only after working on mpv.net I realized that the command line is actually a cool thing, so now I learn more about it and what is awesome is the new windows terminal, apparently Microsoft has also noticed that's a cool thing. Really confident about my command line knowledge I became after I implemented command line features in mpv.net and after I started to learn powershell more seriously, writing my first advanced function this week.
