    Creating batch files.

    Hello and good morning fellow edugeeks!

    Lately i have seen videos and articles on creating and using batch files to optimise workflow/efficiency and i am very interested in learning to do so, especially to copy the contents of one folder to another and update it with new items in the folder whenever i run the batch file.
    However the tutorials i have came across online seem to all be very basic, so i was wondering what language i would need to learn to make and understand batch files.

    Also if anyone knows any decent sites that can do this for me please do feel free to post

    As always any and all help is appreciated,
    Rob

    A batch script is just a txt file that calls whatever command line tool it is that you wish to use and automates the usage:

    An A-Z Index of the Windows CMD command line | SS64.com

    Gives you some reference to the commands available.

    This link has a lot of information on 'shortcuts' and very helpful variables in xcopy, del, etc.
