IsDirectory.bat is a Windows batch program that can help determine if a specified path is a directory or not. IsDirectory.bat outputs 1 (for true) when the command-line argument is a directory. Otherwise, it outputs 0 (for false).
IsDirectory.bat takes advantage of the SetNumberOfArguments.bat (GPL) script that is available on this web site. So to use IsDirectory.bat, you'll have to download SetNumberOfArguments.bat, if you don't already have it.
IsDirectory.bat is distributed as executable source code under the GNU General Public License. Please see the license agreement elsewhere on this site.
I found a bug with "IsDirectory.bat" where it couldn't recognize "..\" as a directory. And it couldn't recognize drives (e.g. "e:\") as directories.
I've fixed the problem and the new version is attached below.
dir /a:d %1
There are some exception cases that the previous version cannot handle. Therefore, I have made the "IsDirectory.bat" script a little more robust. The new version is attached below.
Found that the previous versions of "IsDirectory.bat" could not handle '&' character in directory and file name. Using crampies' tip above, I have updated the script to handle '&' correctly. The new version is attached below.
Discovered that this script fails on directory where we don't have permission to access. Updated it in the version below to now work with no permission directories.
