Is it possible to just use notepad and command line to write a program that will create a photo slideshow? Without using any other programs other then the factory default programs? Can this be done?
what do you mean by factory default programs?
Do you mean fresh install?
Sadly, there are very few default scripting/coding utilities on a fresh windows and doing
such a thing in a command line and notepad is somewhat frustrating.
I believe it is possible to use Windows Script Host to do this, but it is the only way I can think of that is "somewhat reasonable" and doesnt involve writing shellcode in command
prompt using default utilities to hardcode an executable...
If I had to do something like this, I would stick to microsoft office, or if you do not
have that installed, you can try using Dynamic HTML in notepad and run the slideshow
in a browser, as most browsers can support old-style Dynamic HTML, and internet explorer comes with any windows platform, this can be done.
Also, you can try using a batch script to open a certain image in a certain interval, and reset afterwards (dont know how), but this would be a pain as well.
The most elegant solution I would imagine would be Dynamic HTML... although it does not "particularly" use a command prompt...
Hopefully this helped :X
Almost definitely yes. But you have not been very specific about what you want.
A less-conventional solution, if you have a web site, is one of the power-point-like web presentations. Here are example presentations of two different technologies: Slidy and S5.
You mentioned notepad, so you're probably running Windows. If you install Cygwin, you can write a small bash script to run in a bash shell (a very powerful replacement for the DOS/CMD window) that would pop up a picture, wait and pop up another. I just wrote this little script that I ran just now. It's very limited, but it works.
