Re: Yes, I can see how that would work for those who want to stay in the command prompt...by Laanan Fisher (no login)
Yeah, command-line usage is typical (remember programs like FIND and MORE). An interactive program does not imply a more feature-packed experience, nor does it imply simpler or quicker usage. Think of a program that renames the filenames of MP3s based on the ID tags (or vice-versa). Drag-and-drop sure, but a script to automate the process is nice, perhaps with an option to specify an earliest date or a recursive operation,
echo updating new MP3s in all subdirectories..
update-mp3.exe --if-newer-than="2 days" --recursive *.mp3
Some other uses:
- specifying program load options, like the path of a configuration file to use
- games: disable sound/music, specify memory limits, warp to a level
