choice - Computer Definition
A Windows command that allows a batch file to include multiple tasks and lets the user choose which one to perform. Choice accepts a single character as input. The syntax varies between Windows versions; however, the following three-character example works in Windows Vista, 7 and 8. See batch file abc's. @echo off choice /c abc if errorlevel 3 goto thingc if errorlevel 2 goto thingb (do thing a here) goto end :thingb (do thing b here) goto end :thingc (do thing c here) :end The allowable characters follow the /c, and the example above prompts the user with [A, B, C]?. If any other character is entered, the computer beeps. The input character is stored as an error level: "a" becomes error level 1; "b" is 2 and "c" is 3.
