Run C/C++ script with bat

Recommended Posts

Is there any way to run c/c++ script with bat file? I need batch command to create Digital Stopwatch but got a c++ script. I don't know c++. So I need bat help.

Spoiler

#include<conio.h>
#include<process.h>
#include<iostream.h>
#include<dos.h>

int h=0,m=0,s=0,ms=0;
char ch=’p’;

void main()
{
void watch();
watch();

while(1)
{
if(kbhit())
ch=getch();
if(ch==’s’||ch==’S’)
break;
if(ch==’e’||ch==’E’)
exit(0);
}

while(1)
{
watch();
delay(10);

if(kbhit())
ch=getch();

if(ch==’r’||ch==’R’)
{
h=m=s=ms=0;
watch();

while(1)
{
if(kbhit())
ch=getch();
if(ch==’s’||ch==’S’)
break;
if(ch==’e’||ch==’E’)
exit(0);
}

That is NOT a "C/C++ script", it is a small C++ program SOURCE CODE, which you got from here:
http://www.thecrazyprogrammer.com/2013/06/cc-program-to-create-digital-stopwatch.html

Normally such a Source Code needs to be COMPILED (though there are C and possibly C++ interpreters, very probably, like 99.9999% you DO NOT actually want that).

Also it seems like targeted to a "pure DOS" (not Windows).

Try asking what you *need* or would like to obtain (FINAL GOAL, as opposed to the way you believe you should reach that goal), right now you are slipping on a chiocolate covered banana :w00t::ph34r::

Thanks jaclaz. I need just a batch command for a stop watch with h:m:s or h:m:s:ms (hour:Minutes:Seconds: millisecond) format like the picture attached.

For what you need this? I'm asking because we don't know whether or why it must be written as a batch/cmd, maybe a script in other language or command line executable will be a better choice.

I badly need it to count time during software installation. I've made some silent softwares with batch command. I need to check how much time do these softwares take to be installed.

So, you don't actually want a "stopwatch", you want a "timer" instead.

This latter can easily be made in batch.

The following is slightly obfuscated (so that readers may have an occasion to exercise their little gray cells):

SET N=batch Program by jaclaz for Start Time and End Time of a Program execution

Very complicated script. I tried it. I think it's not that I want. I've attached a screenshot. For example I'm installing office. During installing it'll show the timer massage. So I can monitor how much time (Minute or second) is going on for the installation.

Well, here, once saved the posted batch as mytymer.cmd, when run in a command prompt it shows:


 

batch Program by jaclaz for Start Time and End Time of a Program execution
Parameter is Missing
Usage: mytimer.cmd <executable>
PING -n 6 127.0.0.1

Program Start 18.32.43,74
Program End   18.32.49,05


Program Time  00.00.05,31

How different is what happens there?

Perhaps a more simple solution would be to use a VBS script to install. I say this because VBS has a built in

Timer Function, below is an example using 3 common MS apps in an Array. It will then process the time it 

takes you to close each app and report it with a 10 second self closing Popup messagebox.

'-> Runtime Object
Dim Act :Set Act = CreateObject("Wscript.Shell")
'-> Array To Hold Apps
Dim App :App = Array("Notepad.exe","mspaint.exe", "cmd.exe")
'-> Runtime Varibles
Dim Tm1, Tm2, Tm3, Tm4, i
'-> Threw Each App In Tha Array
 For Each i In App 
'-> Start Time
  Tm1 = Timer
   Act.Run(i),1,True 
'-> End Time
  Tm2 = Timer
'-> Results 
  Tm3 = Tm2 - Tm1 
'-> For The Popup Report
  Tm4 = Tm4 & Round(Tm3,2) & " seconds " & i & vbCrLf 
 Next 
'-> Show The Results
 Act.Popup Tm4,10,"Results",4128

Rename DemoTimer.vbs.txt to DemoTimer.vbs to make active

If it doesn't have to be a batch (and it seems it doesn't), you might try using Powershell. If I have understood you correctly, you need to have time how much the installation takes?

Measure-Command {Start-Process "C:yourpath" -wait}

Seems much easier to me.

Path to your file instead of C:\yourpath of course. Maybe output is not as fancy and you need to keep PS opened, but works. .
This one was done fast just because I like sleeping, but if you like my way I might polish that tomorrow

Hope I helped :rolleyes:

Ummm. It *looks* like the OP wants it to "calculate *beforehand*. See the Picture posted (still haven't got the hang of re-linking). Seriously, you need to TIME it (roughly) FIRST (using given methods above) and THEN insert your "message". Be aware that even MS did a "rough guess" and on a FAST computer, XP installs WAY FASTER than MS original perceived.

I can use timer for calculate the time (Code below). But It's not that what I exactly want. 

Spoiler

@echo off
setlocal enabledelayedexpansion
cls & title Stopwatch

pushd %~dp0
for /f "tokens=1-7 delims=/-:. " %%A in ("%time%") do set /a "x=%%A%%B%%C%%D"

echo. Please Wait..
echo. Installing MS Office 2010.
setup.exe

for /f "tokens=1-7 delims=/-:. " %%A in ("%time%") do set /a "y=%%A%%B%%C%%D"

set /a z=y-x

:: split string & add decimal in echo
set z1=%z:~0,-2%
set z2=%z:~-2,2%
cls
echo.
echo.
echo.
echo. It took %z1%.%z2% seconds to be installed.

echo. & pause

@submix8c

Anyway the getTimeInAdvanceFromCrystalBall function is not available in the API unless user is "Magician" :w00t: . ;)

Just in case the needed XKCD:
https://xkcd.com/612/

@Kali

Hmmm, the batch you posted seemingly mixes liberally HH , MM, SS and hs, you will have a number of incorrect results in many cases.

And - if I get this right now - what you want is that the thingy shows time elapsed since start of the program updating it in "real time", i.e. something more like a "progress bar".

This could be done in batch of course, BUT it will hog the CPU. :ph34r: AND you will have the whole display flashing, as the only simple way to update a command window from batch is to clear screen and re-output the new info.

BUT there is a neat trick using SET /P and the backspace character (0x08) see:
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/368041/how-to-code-a-spinner-for-waiting-processes-in-a-batch-file

so that we can have *something* like:

Spoiler

@ECHO OFF
SETLOCAL ENABLEEXTENSIONS ENABLEDELAYEDEXPANSION
SET Before=%Time%
CALL :to_hs Before

ECHO Time is now %Time%
ECHO Starting program ...
start /min cmd.exe /c wait.exe 10>nul

:loop
SET Now=%Time%
CALL :to_hs Now
SET /A DeltahsVal=%NOWhsval%-%BEFOREhsVal%
CALL :to_HHMMShs Delta

::There are 11 0x08 characters in the line below between = and Elapsed
<nul (set /p output=Elapsed %Delta%)

::This updates the display roughly every second 
ping -n 1 127.0.0.1>nul

TASKLIST |FIND /I "wait.exe">nul&&GOTO :loop
ECHO Time is now %Time%
ECHO Finished in %Delta%
GOTO :EOF

:to_hs
SET %1HH=1!%1:~0,2!
SET %1MM=1!%1:~3,2!
SET %1SS=1!%1:~6,2!
SET %1hs=1!%1:~9,2!
SET /A %1hsVal=(!%1HH!-100)*360000+(!%1MM!-100)*6000+(!%1SS!-100)*100+(!%1SS!-100)

GOTO :EOF

:to_HHMMShs
SET /A %1HH=!%1hsVal!/360000
SET /A %1MM=(!%1hsVal!-!%1HH!*360000)/6000
SET /A %1SS=(!%1hsVal!-!%1HH!*360000-!%1MM!*6000)/100
SET %1hs=0!%1hsVal:~-2!

SET %1HH=0!%1HH!
SET %1MM=0!%1MM!
SET %1SS=0!%1SS!

SET %1=!%1HH:~-2!.!%1MM:~-2!.!%1SS:~-2!,!%1hs:~-2!


 

For the example above I used the Wait.exe available here:
