If only I could use regular expressions without having to google the syntax and spend 20 minutes per command trying to make it work... :P I'm somewhat envious of people who seem to be able to read it natively.

BTW you taught me something new in this video. I'd seen that COPY CON: command in batch files but never figured out what it actually was doing. Very neat way of editing, almost like the C64's 'screen editor'. I would have used "echo '(line of text)' >> (filename)" to do that.

Ah yeah about ten years ago it was my "party trick" of sorts, so I spent a lot of time learning the things. The biggest pain is different software needs different things escaped.

Awesome, yeah it's how those "remote uploads" work for tools like LapLink and FastLink too.
It's pretty crafty, just split the file by "CTRL+Z" and use copy con over the serial link, then copy /B to merge the files back.
