Porting Windows to Linux

MS-DOS to bash #

Recently I was googling around, and come into some code written for Windows only, or at least using Windows filepaths.

Filepaths #

Most of the difference lies in changing out a forward slash for a back slash.


becomes '%system.fp%../Input/'

erase move copy if exist #

These are all MSDOS commands that I had to convert to bash ones.

The corresponding ones are: rm, mv, cp

if exist doesn't need a corresponding command, because if if bash doesn't
find anything, then the command just isn't executed.

mkdir #

Stays the same!

The hidden one #

One difference I wasn't able to just see immediately was cls. Corresponding
command is clear
