• Random select file and rename

    From Jay Allshire@1:120/302 to All on Wed Mar 9 13:12:29 2016
    Hello All,

    I am trying to find a way wiht a batch file to select a random file from a given list of files (example: welcome.1 welcome.2 welcome.3 welcome.4 etc) and have it choose one and then rename it to a given file name everytime (example welcome.clr) I am trying to make this so it will ramdomly rotate welcome screens for a old bbs program that I am running. If this is possible it would be great if someone could help me make this work.


    Thanks in advance..
