Printing Cookies

we have been asked to supply a print off of all the cookies on our machine, is there anyway to print off the contents of a folder?

Good question, I just tried (granted, only spent 2 minutes) and couldn't figure a way of doing it besides doing screen prints (but this is on a windows 2000 machine, I'm not sure about XP).

There really isn't one if memory serves me, still requires a software backbone to execute print jobs... but I'm less certain of this as it's been YEARS since I've had to work in a purely DOS environment (and thank god for that!).

I vaguely remember trying this a while back and hit the same brick wall. Something tells me the old Dosshell feature could, but then you'd be off the windows platform altogether (think they stopped including this at version 6.22).

Thumbs up sorted

Ive sorted it, this works:

at command prompt type the following:-


c:\windows\cookies >>list.txt

this creates a notepad document listing the all the files in the folder, which can then be printed.

Have you tried to drag them into MS Word and print them from there?

I have Xp pro and dragged the cookies into Word and they showed up but I cannot try to print them right now as my Wife is using the printer on the network, but it looked like it would work just not 100% sure.

EDIT:

I see you got it befor I could post back,hehe.

if you want the text of the cookies try selecting them all then hitting print (this may bring you to a standstill for a few min...)

lprint "I waste paper :P"
loop
I hope that syntax is right; I haven't used QBASIC in a LONG time

Another way...

Code:
dir /B >list.txt
will create a list of all files in the current directory, and redirect it to a file called list.txt

DIR /B creates a "bare" format listing.

Of course, if you actually want the contents...
Code:
type *.txt >text.txt
would create a file called text.txt containing the contents of every text file in the current directory

And yet another addendum

>> is append
> is write


so your method of >> is actually adding the list to the file, not just erasing anything existing then writing





god i'm bored
