you can easily convert .bat to .txt by simply right clicking on the .bat file and select edit.From there copy the whole code and paste it into a new notepad and delete .bat file.
Yes!you are done........
You can do it by several methods.
1) Simply change the extension of file from .bat to .txt (if it ask for permission with a warning, allow it).
2) Copy the whole content from .bat file and paste it in a new .txt file.
3) There are some platforms available on internet where you can just drop your .bat file and it will get converted into any extension you want. For example: The world's largest computer file extension library with detailed explanation of each file type with links to associated software programs.
Batch files(.bat) are already text files you don't have to convert them manually if u wish to open u can directly see using text editor but if want to convert then it's very simple just rename file from .bat to .txt extension that's it.
I use online software on google and duck duck go. There are multiple sites which can convert any type of file into specific format you like. One such website I use is:- https://www.file-extensions.org/
There are a lot of ways to do it.
1. Open the file with notepad and save as it.txt
2. Right click on the file and go to properties, advanced option and then change it.
3. Rename the file with.txt extension.
4. Right click on the file, open with, select notepad, check the always box.
5. Copy the entire element of that file and paste it over a new text file and then save it.
Open a new Notepad file. You can also use any similar text file editor, like Notepad++.
Type the following commands in the text file:
Save the text file with the extension .bat instead of .txt. For instance, testbatch.bat in my case.
To Run the batch file, simply double-click it. The CMD Window will open automatically with the desired output.
- You need to scan for links in the txt file, search for regular expression matching
- You need a http client to fetch the link, if you are in powershell, lookup curl, else use python and its http library
- You need to open and close that file periodically, and to do that, write a loop in your script, or use task scheduler.
Also, Learn python, it is worth the effort and will be at worst having the same learning curve as batch script.
