Batch Script – String Concatenation
String Concatenation is combining two or more strings to create a new string. For instance, let a string “Good” and take another string “Morning” now by string concatenation i.e. “Good” + “Morning” and we got new string i.e. “Good Morning”. This is string concatenation.
Let see some examples of string concatenation using batch script.
Example 1 :
In this example, we concatenate two strings.
First, we create a batch file named “concatenation.bat” and open it in notepad.
@echo off :: We take two string Good and Morning set str1=Good set str2=Morning :: Below command will join two string and store it in str_new variable set str_new=%str1% %str2% echo %str_new% pause
Save the above batch script and run it.
Note: “pause” is used to hold the screen of the executed file until any key is pressed.
Example 2 :
In this example, we concatenate more than two strings.
First, open the notepad and write the following command.
@echo off :: Here we take three string set str1=Hello Dear set str2=Welcome to Geeks For Geeks site set str3=This is example of string Concatenation :: Below command will join these strings and store it in str_new variable set str_new=%str1% %str2% and %str3% echo %str_new% pause
Save the above batch script with the .bat extension and run it.
