I have just started to find the need to create cmd line batch files and I want to convert them to an .exe file for security reasons. I don't want to use a ".bat to .exe" converter because I would rather learn how to rewrite batch files in C++ myself.
The batch file I am using tells DriveImage XML to start under the schedualed tasks (Windows), where to place the backup file, add a date to the file name and has the required switches at the end.
As I said before, I want to learn how to do this myself. Unfortunately, google did not come up with favorable results when I searched for an answer. I want to say that most of the results either were ads for ".bat to .exe" type programs or people asking how to run multiple .bat files within (insert programming language).Code:"C:\Program Files (x86)\Runtime Software\DriveImage XML\dixml.exe" /bc /t"D:\Backup\DIXML %date:~4,2%-%date:~7,2%-%date:~10%" /r- /s- /c2 /v
Is there a specific book or topic that covers this particular subject at hand (rewriting batch files for C++)?
