Utilities and stuff
Opdateret d. 19.06.2007
- Shutdown2 - This program allows you to switch between different Microsoft operating systems without actively selecting which of them to boot. So if you have multiple operating systems installed, for example Windows 98SE and Windows 2000, simply choose which of them you want to boot and then choose if you want to restart or shutdown the machine. Unattended, your machine will now boot the selected operating system.
- Cabal7 - This is a version of the standard Windows Solitaire card game. I basically does everything (nearly) the Windows version does, but allows you to replay a particular game again and again (for example if you feel you have made an error). It has undo, and a computer play in two versions, so you can determine if a particular game is winable.
- TimeOn - This program can tell you when you last booted or restarted your computer and how long it's been since then.
- Ask - This Win32 command line utility asks a specified prompt and stores the input into a specified environment variable. It then executes the specified command using the modified environment.
- Output - This Win32 command line utility outputs whatever text you specify as parameters. Backslash-n/r/b will be translated to newline/carriage return/backspace. Output is like echo except a newline is not output by default.
- Sleep - This Win32 command line utility sleeps for 1 second or specified time in milliseconds before exiting. Optionally outputs a prompt first.
- WriteEventLog - This Win32 command line utility writes an event to the event log. Most things can be specified: Source (defaults to WriteEventLog), Type (INFO, WARNING, ERROR), EventID and an event message string. Current user is logged too. Sourcecode (VS 2003) shows how to get SID for current user.
- EnvExec - Somebody give me a good name for this! This Win32 command line utility reads stdin and assigns each line to an environment variable constructed from a string specified and the number of the line (beginning with 0). It then executes the specified command within the environment thus allowing you to transfer stdin to variables. Sourcecode (VS 2003) is available.
