I have a Windows .bat file which I would like to accept user input and then use the results of that input as part of the call to additional commands.
For example, I'd like to accept a process ID from the user, and then run jstack against that ID, putting the results of the jstack call into a file. However, when I try this, it doesn't work.
Here's my sample bat file contents:
@echo off set /p id=Enter ID: echo %id% jstack > jstack.txt
and here's what shows up in jstack.txt:
Enter ID: Terminate batch job (Y/N)?
