I made some little scrips which used the #define command. I couldn't use more than 9 variables (%1 to %9), so I thought, maybe I could use the shift command to shift the parameters. But it still can't get the value of parameters after the %9 variable. I think this is a big bug, because I now can't make some scripts in the 'VDS way', by using commas to seperate the values.... Crying or Very sad

Code:
#define function,test

rem This should return something like 10|11|12|13|etc.
info @test(1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16,17,18,19,20)

exit

:Test
shift
shift
shift
shift
shift
shift
shift
shift
shift
shift
exit %1 | %2 | %3 | %4 | %5 | %6 | %7 | %8 | %9

It's not a bug. When you call a command or function, the parameters or arguments are assigned to variables %1 to %9. You cannot have more than 9 parameters or arguments. It's the same when passing parameters to a program on the command line. In fact, VDS uses exactly the same code in both cases. The shift command shifts %2 to %1, %3 to %2 etc, %9 to %8 and leaves %9 blank.

Isn't it possible to get all parameters with one function, so I can parse them myself?

%%CmdLine = %1%2%3%4%5%6%7%8%9

Or

%%CmdLine = %1|%2|%3|%4|%5|%6|%7|%8|%9

Actually, I can cram 200 parameters into just %1 if I wanted. It's in how
you send the parameters from one of your programs to the other. Leaving
a space between them causes VDS to move to the next variable.

If you send your parameters without spaces and use a special character
to seperate them within the command line, you can have as many as
you want.

But you're responsible for sorting out the mess you make. Wink

Run %0 /Name:Garrett/LastName:Hylltun/Age:ReallyOld/Interest:VDS

As far as VDS is concerned, that's just one single parameter above. I'm
sure there's a character limit in place by windows, but I've not run into
yet myself doing the above. I'd suggest limiting each variable to 10
parameters. So you could have up to 90 parameters if you want. More
if you want to push the limits. Wink

I think what Skit means is that he wants to do his units the "VDS-Style"
way, with commas separating it so it is easy to use, like this:

Code:
BLABLA CREATE,BlaBla1,-1,0,44,44,Another_Parameter,Etc,Etc,Etc


Would it be possible to just add more number variables, like %10 to %50? Smile

If you want to pass a long list of items to process them one at a time probably the best way of doing it is put them into a string list.
