    I need a batch file that will ping computer names or ip addresses from a list inside of a .txt. I also need it to pipe the result to a different .txt whether it be true or false depending on whether or not the host was reachable.

    anyone think they can help me with this?

    This would take around 3 lines in perl.

    I posted my solution awhile ago but here it is again. This actually pings the server (pingserver.bat):

    Code:
    @echo off
    ping -n 1 %1 | find "Request timed out" > NUL
    if %errorlevel% equ 0 goto dead
    
    :live
    echo %1 still alive
    goto end
    
    :dead
    echo %1 dead
    
    :end
    And the other main batch file that will run thru a text file:

    Code:
    @for /f %%i in (ip.txt) do @call pingserver.bat %%i
    you can change the echo commands to:

    type %1 blah blah blah > result.txt
