I have a file with each line of the format name=value. I need to read it using a DOS script and store all the name value pairs in memory. The names are from a predefined list of names, so I can have a list of DOS variables, and assign values to them as and when a line is read from the file. Please provide the script for doing this. I'm not able to even do as much as read a file using the below code which I got on the internet, it printes nothing:
FOR /F %i IN (regfort.properties) DO @echo %i
The file tobe read is like this:
As the names are pre-defined, when the batch file reads the first line it will set the variable %name1% to value1 and while reading the 2nd line it will set the variable %name2%.
