    file .bat for mac
    Hi, I need to convert a. Bat file to mac to start a portable application from usb stick.
    This is the code to convert::
    start \VLCPortable\VLCPortable.exe /VIDEO_TS\VIDEO_TS.IFO
    The question is: how to convert the code and how should I call the file?
    Obviously, then I'll replace the file VLCPortable.exe with a portable for Mac

    What you need is a shell script. However, note that a shell script will not run when you insert the usb stick, you have to run it manually.
    Start here: Learn the Linux command line. Write shell scripts..
    That should get you started.

    Thanks for the answer, but I'm not so good in programming, can you help me translating:
    start \VLCPortable\VLCPortable.exe /VIDEO_TS\VIDEO_TS.IFO
    in a shell script
    Thank you...

    That should do the trick. Save it with the extension "sh" and you should be good to go.

    That will work if the VLC app bundle is in the same directory as the shell script.
