  • Learning to script - where should I start?

    Hey guys.
    I'm a novice when it comes to scripting. I know next to nothing and some of my terminology is probably going to be incorrect.

    My question is should I start with learning batch commands/DOS commands (not sure what you call it) or should I start with something like VBS or JS?

    Also, can anyone recommend any books that would be good?

    Thanks!
    Regards,

    Hi Jeremy

    Few good places:

    Good examples:

    And books wise I recommend the Microsoft Press books. VB Script is my preference but they are things you might do with a batch file (like bulk copy of folders) that is just easier than VB. It depends on the task.

    VB Script then can lead to ASP, ASP.Net, VB.Net etc... Hope this helps!

      If you're looking into Windows Scripting Host (WSH) aka VBScript... MSDN have some excellent resources for almost every avenue (VBScript or .NET).

      Here's a link to MS's WSH reference:
