I'm looking for a way of programatically ( from a batch file ) creating shortcuts to
cmd ( or other command line utilities ).
This can be easily achieved using SHORTCUT.EXE ( found in ENVARS.EXE ), but I cannot specify parameters such as the font to be used by the console window, the background/font colour, or the maximum scrolling lines.
How can such customized shortcuts be created from within a script ?
I experienced random crashes with ENVARS.EXE's SHORTCUT.EXE, it seems this tool was built for Win95 and has issues on newer platforms. Instead, I used this tool, it has a very similar syntax, supports the same options and works well.
I'm now looking into Shellify, it seems to be more advanced and has a more standard way of specifying options. ( with dashes instead of
/ ). It does require .NET framework, though.
