@echo off
rem  S2's bookmark sync, BAT version 4RC
rem  For more information see
rem  --- purpose & differences from alternatives ---
rem  This is a very small and easy bat file for windows (it does 
rem  not require a running scripting host like the JS version).
rem  It automatically downloads your bookmarks from an ftp
rem  server when you start Mozilla (or any other browser for
rem  that matter), and reups them on the server when you
rem  close your Mozilla session.
rem  Thus you can use most current bookmarks in different places (e.g. 
rem  at university, work and home) without the need for disks or the like.
rem  Most other tools for that purpose require some scripts (perl, php,...) 
rem  running on a server - this script only requires an ftp server which you
rem  can easily get for free from ISPs etc. Others aim at merging different 
rem  versions rather than avoiding different versions, e.g. 
rem  At some point in the future, Mozilla itself will support roaming profiles
rem  like Netscape4 did ( 
rem  But this requires a special server as well.
rem  --- how to use ---
rem  All you have to do is 
rem  1) edit the variables below this remarks-text
rem  choose variant a: uses two icons, one for up- and one for downloading
rem  a2) create two shortcuts to the bat file on your desktop, call 
rem      the first "upload", and the second "download".
rem  a3) right click the "upload" shortcut, select "Properties", and 
rem      put "up" at the end of the destination textbox.
rem      ex. if you downloaded booksync.bat to 
rem          C:\Program Files\\Mozilla\boksync.bat, 
rem          the text in the Destination textbox should be 
rem          "C:\Program Files\\Mozilla\boksync.bat" up
rem  or choose variant b: uses one single icon and stores status (up or down?) to 
rem                       a temporary file so you may close the CMD-window
rem  b2) create one shortcut to the bat file on your desktop, call it "Mozilla"
rem  b3) nothing ;-)
rem  4) you are done!
rem --- troubleshooting---
rem * If the command-window only closes within milliseconds and you're unable 
rem   to read anything, remove the "rem" of last line of this file
rem * If this BATch is in version b and down- and uploads the bookmarks without
rem   waiting until you closed Moz, Moz was running before (Composer, Mail,...)
rem * Check whether all paths are valid and encpsulated "within quotes"
rem --- changes ---
rem BAT v2 to BAT v4RC by Georg (
rem * added variant b which allows to close the command window with requiring 
rem   only one icon
rem * added some hopefully helpful error messages for runtime
rem * added some basic documentation into the BAT itself
rem * includes the enhancements of BAT v3 "20031115 - Update - New booksync 
rem   version by Daniel Yuan-Chih Lin"
rem * includes the proposal of Comment "[8] Submitted by:  Brodie Tuesday May 
rem   20th 2003" concerning cygwin
rem * changed some var names so they won't interfere so easily with other app's 
rem   vars
rem * removed angles brackets for default ftp infos thus avoiding a "syntax 
rem   error" message if user forgot to change the delimerters as well (has been 
rem   confusing for some)
rem * works not only under WinXP like BAT v3
rem * comments [1] until [41] at were considered
rem BAT v2 to BAT v3 by Daniel (
rem * won't copy zero size bookmarks.html when forget upload bookmarks to ftp at
rem   first
rem * auto upload bookmarks to ftp after first run the booksync3
rem * clear unused variable at the batch file end
rem * reduce environment size
rem * BUT requires windows xp ( which has the && syntax and findstr command )
rem BAT v1 to BAT v2 by S2
rem * now the BATch can up/download AND call mozilla in one step 
rem --- notes to developers ---
rem * "set locErrorlevel=%errorlevel%" is very fragile. 
rem   * It may not be followed by any charcter, elsewise "%locErrorlevel%"=="0" 
rem     won't work
rem   * Use it _directly_ after the command whose errorlevel you want!
rem   * If the previos command and the set are inside a bracket 
rem     (IF..ELSE..-construct) then the errorlevel will always be zero. 
rem     Reason: The stuff inside the bracket will be converted to commands 
rem     (so vars will be replaced by its values etc) and later be executed - at
rem     this time, locErrorlevel will already be zero, so it gets no information
rem     about the runtime but only "make-cmd-time" of its successing command. 
rem     Simply remove "@echo off" from first line and you'll see what I mean...
rem     Well, how to handle? Just break the bracket in 2 parts like this:
rem       IF "%a%"=="b" (...command) 
rem       set locErrorlevel=%errorlevel%
rem       IF "%a%"=="b" ( continue here, now %locErrorlevel% makes sense ...)
rem * remember, there are a lot of configurations and languages, so some paths 
rem   may contain special characters and/or spaces
rem * avoid normal bracktes () as they may interfere with IfThenElse. Use [ ].
