ConsoleFlash

A simple Windows command-line app to flash the console window, letting you know when a script finishes.

Screenshot

Examples

Test it out in the command line:

> sleep 3s && flash

A more practical place is at the end of a lengthy .bat file where you'd like to see the output when it finishes:

@ECHO OFF

initial-setup-code
some-really-long-executable

flash
pause

flash [options]

/c integer          The number of times to flash the window before keeping it inverted, with zero indicating do not stop (default: 3)
/r decimal          The flash rate in seconds, with zero indicating use the system default (default: 0)
/?, /h              Shows this help message
