I use Apache Forrest to generate what will someday be the homepage of paralint.com. I use “forrest run” most of the time, and “forrest site”, “forrest clean” every now and then.

I wrote a little batch file that will launch forrest in a new window when the “run” option is used, and in the same window when any other option is used. Here it is :

@echo off
if "%1"=="run" goto NEWWINDOW

call "%FORREST_HOME%\\bin\\forrest.bat" %*

goto END

start "Forrest" cmd /C "%FORREST_HOME%\\bin\\forrest.bat" %*


You can also add a /T:2F switch to make the window white on green. I often have quite a few console windows running, separating them by color reminds me which one is which !
