@CHIP-RTOS - AUTOEXEC.BAT
IPC@CHIP® Documentation Index
- The AUTOEXEC.BAT file is a special batch file that is executed after system boot.
It can be used to automatically start programs or process any other shell commands
right after RTOS has started up. The AUTOEXEC.BAT is not processed if any boot
error occures. (See Boot flow chart)
It is also possible to stop the execution of the AUTOEXEC.BAT manually by pressing
CTRL + C (via a terminal) while the system starts up. The @CHIP-RTOS will in this
case ask whether the file should be executed or not.
This behaviour can be disabled via a CHIP.INI
What is a batch file?
- A batch file is a plain-text file listing a batch of RTOS shell commands that
will be executed by the command shell. The shell commands must have the same
format as if they were put in on the shell prompt, e.g. you can omit the file
extension .EXE when calling executable programs.
Each line of the batch file may contain one command. The commands will be
processed line-by-line in the given order. Depending on the batchmode, the shell
will wait with the execution of the next line until the previous command has
finished or has allowed further batch processing. The batchmode can be modified
using a CHIP.INI entry or
with the corresponding shell command.
By definition batch files have the file extension .BAT. This is needed for the
command shell to identify a file as a batch file. Besides the AUTOEXEC.BAT
there can be many other batch files on your IPC@CHIP® that you can call by hand.
This is especially useful to create shortcuts for commands which need a lot of
