Writing out all the directories (or other set) to an external file. One line, comma separated (useful for creating simple CSV files)
for /d %%I in (*) do ( echo.|set /p ="%%I," ) >> directories.txt
Testing in command lane:
c:\>for /d %I in (*) do (echo.|set /p ="%I,") >>directories.txt c:\>type directories.txt Ant,dev,drvrtmp,Intel,PerfLogs,Program Files,Program Files (x86),Python25,Python26,Python31,svn,Users,Windows,
How to store an Environment variable which contains undefined env.variables for later use.
c:\>set format="Name:%name% Date:%birthday%"
Using in batch file, need double %%
set format="Name:%%name%% Date:%%birthday%%"
Now format contains only a “template”
c:\>echo %format% "Name:%name% Date:%birthday%"
Later in your program you can set the missing environment variables
c:\>set name=Botond c:\>set birthday=2010.05.01
and then, using format as a template, you can make the final record:
c:\>for /f "delims=" %I in ('echo %format%') do (set record=%I)
or using it in a Batch script:
for /f "delims=" %%I in ('echo "%format%"') do (set record=%%I)
Now the variable record contains the final result:
c:\>echo %record% "Name:Botond Date:2010.05.01"
