Assuming you have gnutils echo %path% | tr ; \n is a command-line equivalent of Chris' suggestion.

> "I run the signal processing, decoding, and visualization" If you have access to the source code for this it should be possible with some small programming component.

@Endoro I have adblock enabled with most draconian settings and still can browse SU fine. Perhaps worthy of a question on meta

comment Deleting all but latest revision of a file
Is it always the case that a higher rev implies a later date? How do you have forward slashes in your filenames?

Definitely possible. Does it need to be batch or can it be powershell/python/other?

As a point of interest you used to be able to hold Shift on startup to solve this, but it's removed in 7.

comment Force Windows 7 to unload items from memory (not Superfetch)
> "You have probably run out of memory because you have disabled the pagefile". This is misleading but somewhat accurate. Despite you having physical memory left, you may exhaust virtual memory (which should be unlimited) as the OS is no longer able to guarantee a virtual memory page can be committed; your comit limit is reduced. When this is exceeded, virtual memory requests fail and things start to crash. I'm far from an expert on this but want to point out it's more complicated than the above comments are alluding to.

comment Can I connect a 3.5" HDD to a laptop using USB 2.0?
-1 'absolutely no risk'; a fluctuating power level (e.g over-strained USB bus) can directly cause data corruption. (My only source is personal experience - faulty caddy with 12v rail that varied +-0.5v @0.5Hz would render drives unreadable).
