xx Command line switches?
« Thread started on: Aug 22nd, 2013, 02:56am »

I've just started using Bart, and I'm a little unclear about how to use command line switches.

As far as I can tell, if I want to create a shortcut or .bat that opens the program and automatically runs tasks, I need the -runall switch. But in your examples at the end of the readme, your second command line example is:

bart.exe -datelog -file weekly.job -letter:l

Doesn't this just open the program without running anything? I'm missing what use is the command line in this case.

Additionally, is it possible to run only a specific task through switches?

And lastly, is there any way to queue loading two job files one after the other? Though I could work around this by creating a third job file that includes the tasks from both job files, and run this one as needed.

Oh well my command line examples are probably all rubbish! Yes, that will launch the app without running it, but perhaps that's what the user wants to do!

No, there's no way to run just one task through the command line.

If you wanted to run two job files, one after the other, you could put them on two lines in the batch file. One will get executed, and then the other one.

And now I've learned something new about batch files. Thanks.

And you're right about the example command line, it would actually be useful if you want to load Bart with those switches enabled and then manually choose which tasks to run.

On an unrelated note since you're around, I'm also using Stickies, and I've found both to be great, simple software. I especially like the clean UI designs and your attention to detail in the help files.

Thanks smiley It's nice to know someone reads them - as you probably appreciate they take a while to write!
