Multiple windowsby lawgin (no login)
If I use the code below to copy 25 files from one directory to another with qb4.5, it performs all 25 operations in the same CMD window. With qb64 the window is quickly opened and closed 25 times. Is there any way to get qb64 to use the same window?
FOR n = 1 TO 25
SHELL "cmd /c copy c:\aaa\file" + LTRIM$(STR$(n)) + ".txt c:\bbb"

|*write the copy commands to a bat file, then shell to the bat file.||on Sep 22|
|I don't think that would work||lawgin on Sep 22|
