VBScript Primer

Microsoft® Windows® 2000 Scripting Guide

Microsoft® Visual Basic® Scripting Edition (VBScript) is an easy-to-use scripting language that enables system administrators to create powerful tools for managing their Microsoft® Windows®based computers. In the first half of this chapter, the fundamental principles of VBScript are illustrated by the creation of a simple script for determining the amount of free disk space on drive C of a computer. This script will evolve throughout the chapter into a more sophisticated tool, one that can determine the amount of free space for any drive on any computer. The second half of this chapter then explores these fundamental principles of VBScript programming in more detail and touches on other VBScript constructs of interest to system administrators.
