( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Update:

Feedback from the map Czar, Doug.

"Below is the contents of the batch file with the wget. the italicized all caps words are things I took out to anonymize the information.

cd /users/NAME/documents/FOLDER /Windows/GnuWin32/bin/wget http://www.google.com/maps/d/u/1/kml?mid=FI +LE ID --no-check-certificate

This saves it to the folder in the batch file with the name kml@mid=FILE ID.NUMBER Then all you have to do is rename it NAME.kmz and it works perfectly. there might be a better way with the file names but this works fine for our purpose. it only has to be renamed if I need to restore the map. so far it is churning away as planned. I appreciate the help. you probably have more time in finding this solution than I do in setting up the map."

Doug is running the .bat file hourly using Windows Scheduler. Thanks again to all that contributed.

Edit: Callsign removed by request.

There's never enough time to do it right, but always enough time to do it over...

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
