Coverts simple basic shell scripts to windows batch scripts.


While it is not really possible to take every shell script and automatically convert it to a windows batch file, this library provides a way to convert simple basic shell commands to windows batch commands.
The original goal of this library is to provide users of cargo-make a way to write simple tasks with shell scripts without duplicating their code for each platform.


Simply include the library and invoke the convert function as follows:

extern crate shell2batch;

fn main() {
    let script = shell2batch::convert(
        export FILE1=file1
        export FILE2=file2

        #this is some test code
        cp ${FILE1} $FILE2

        mv file2 file3

        export MY_DIR=directory

        #flags are supported
        rm -Rf ${MY_DIR}

        unset MY_DIR

set FILE1=file1
set FILE2=file2

@REM this is some test code
xcopy %FILE1% %FILE2%

@REM another
move file2 file3

set MY_DIR=directory

@REM flags are supported
del /Q %MY_DIR%

set MY_DIR=

    println!("Script: {}", script);


In order to use this library, just add it as a dependency:

shell2batch = "*"
