Convert your existing bash scripts & batch files to ducky script


Recommended Posts

I wrote a simple script for both windows and linux, txt2ducky that will turn this

@echo off
@echo Super cool awesome batch file

into this

STRING @echo off
STRING @echo Super cool awesome batch file
STRING ipconfig

Nothing earth shattering, but I find it useful anyway. I'm sure it's been done before, but I couldn't find any examples soooo... whatever, here it is.


Windows: txt2ducky.cmd
Linux/etc: txt2ducky.sh



txt2ducky inputfile [outputfile]


Roll Your Own

If you want to use the code in another (batch file) project, all you really need is

FOR /F "usebackq delims=" %%I IN ("%FILEIN%") DO (
    @echo STRING %%I >> "%FILEOUT%"
    @echo ENTER      >> "%FILEOUT%"

or in a bash script, go for...

while read -r line; do
    echo STRING $line >> $fileout
    echo ENTER        >> $fileout
done < $filein


Just RegEx It!

You can of course achieve the same thing was a simple RegEx find and replace...
Find: .*
Replace: STRING $0\nENTER


Wrapping Up

Hopefully someone else finds it useful.
