As with all other plugins from CP is the readline plugin really easy to use! This plugin comes especially in handy with batch files. The way you can use this plugin is by typing: readline “test.txt” 2 or rl “test.txt” 2. As you can see there is an shortened version of this command as well. To see the help of this plugin type: readline /? or rl /?. Okay, so now let’s do an example. If you would like to read the first line of a document called “1234.lst” that’s on your C: drive. Type this: readline “C:\1234.lst” 1 or for the shortened version: rl “C:\1234.lst” 1. This plugin can also be used with every normal operator!
You can use this and all other plugins fromCP in cmd or batch files.
