Copy dialog box text or export to .txt

Recommended Posts

Basically thats it. When you run program name /? you get a dialog box of the available swithes, I just want to copy the dialog box or export its text to a text file.

program_name /?>swithes.txt doesent work (it just generates a blank .txt)...hey...it was my first thought. Suggestions???

Your right,

re-directing the output to a txt file works for most command, except a few. What command are you trying it with ?

...Well I am just wanting to get the switches for various programs. Some programs used different switches and some of the same switches produce different results for different programs. Anyhow...I found "jocr" which will basically do an ocr on any picture you select and outputs that to a text file. Its not perfect, it mistakes some characters, but over all it works...it you know a better way (better program, reg edit to allow copying in dialog boxes) let me know. Thanks.

I was just (as an example, but a real one) trying gdidettool.exe /?>gdilog.txt

If you are using Windows 2000 or later try pressing CTRL+C when a message box is the active window.
