Google your parameters



  • You can google your parameters with a batch file like this:

    start https://www.google.com/search?q=%1%%20%2%%20%3%%20%4%%20%5%%20%6%%20%7
    

    You need a double % because a batch file would interpret %20 as your second parameter plus 0. The double % tells it you want %20 which is the URL code for a space.



  • is this the same on Mac



  • @jmcgoverndesign, no that's a batch file which only works on a PC.

    Macs use bash scripts instead.

    This script should open Google in Safari:

    #!/bin/bash
    open -a Safari http://google.com
    

    This script takes parameters, and should work similarly to the Windows batch file that googles your parameters:

    #!/bin/bash
    open -a Safari http://google.com/search?q=$1%20$2%20$3%20$4
    

    I tested it that and it worked for me.
