Some useful tools
=================

This repository contains a few command-line tools I wrote in a hurry, and might be useful to others.


FinalPathNameByHandle
---------------------
Prints the final path of the given file or folder name, i.e. all junctions and symlinks are resolved.
See the MSDN article on [GetFinalPathNameByHandle] for more information.


[GetFinalPathNameByHandle]: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/aa364962.aspx



IsWorkstationLocked
-------------------
Reports whether the workstation is locked, or waits for the given status. See the [help output] for more info.


[help output]: artifact?ci=trunk&filename=src/res/IsWorkstationLocked-help.txt



ConvertCharset
--------------
Reads a text file using the specified character set, and writes it using a different character set.
Useful for converting old DOS era plain text files to the modern age (i.e. UTF-8). :-)

	Converts a text file from one code page to another
	ConvertCharset [/r=<codepage>] infile /w=<codepage> [outfile] [/b]
	
	infile         The file containing the text to convert. Use a hyphen to read from stdin.
	outfile        The file to write the converted text to. If omitted, the output is
	               written to infile. Use a hyphen to write to stdout.
	/r=<codepage>  The character set or code page of infile. If omitted, the system's
	               default (ANSI) character set is assumed.
	/w=<codepage>  The character set or code page to convert the text to.

	For <codepage>, you can either use a code page number, or a charset name, as supported
	by the system.
