  • Mood:
any DOS batch file gurus out there?
I need to write a frontend for Net Send for my boss.
basically I just need it to go like this:

Text to send: *boss types text in, hits return*
net send [all our usernames] "[inputed text]"
Message sent!
Press any key to continue...

so how do I get it to input text into a variable and then use that variable in another statement? it's driving me nuts. it's the only part I'm stuck on.
A few years ago I would have whipped this out without blinking, but i'm just getting back to doing old skool batch files again.

Thanks for any help.
