Windows 7: using batch files to insert signature

using batch files to insert signature

Win7 Home Premium x64 SP1

There is another forum where I am active that does not support custom signature options. To use a custom signature,you must have it saved somewhere else and use copy/paste to insert it into a post.

I am just beginning to learn batch files and have found that all the commands are not supported by Win7. I have no idea whether or not an elementary batch file can be written to do the following (in pseudo-code). I am guessing that the scripting is too complex for me at this stage of the learning process.

Open <some_name>.txt file
Select All
Print to screen "signature ready to be pasted"

Then simply paste the signature instead of following the steps above one at a time to complete the task.

Before I waste too much time trying to write a batch file for this task, please tell me whether it can be done without more advanced knowledge.

Yes, it can be done, and easier than "selecting_all_and_copying" (those are GUI terms).
Please check my script in attachment.

Thanks. I was pretty sure that I was goofing up the terminology. That is why I used pseudo code to convey the general idea of the requirements.

I noticed what looked like copyright in your attached file. Can I safely assume that by virtue of sharing you have given me permission to use it for my personal use?

If you are talking about letter C in brackets, that was a joke.

I just tried to show different commands for educational purposes.

There is no copyrighted material in that script. It was not registered anywhere.
You can do whatever you want with that script.
