Loop over Files in Directory from a Batch File
Figuring this out took me much longer than it should. The following line in a batch file will execute a command for each file in a directory:
for %%I in (C:\*.*) do echo %%~nxI
I had to overcome two obstacles to make this work:
- When including the command in a batch file the
%characters must be duplicated in comparison to the syntax for executing the command directly from the command line.
~nxprefix to the variable name causes only the filename with extension to be used instead of the complete path.
