Create Matrix Effect Using Notepad [Friday Fun]


Just found a interesting way to create a matrix effect using Notepad and command prompt. Hat tip goes to Jeff who commented on our earlier article about 10 Amazing things you can do with Notepad.

To create a matrix effect using notepad, open notepad and type in the following text (download plain text file):

   1: @echo off
   2:
   3: color 02
   4:
   5: :start
   6:
   7: echo %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% %random%
   8:
   9: goto start

Save the file as matrix.bat and double click on it to see a Matrix like effect.
