Here are my NT CMD scripts that demonstrate some of the CMD extensions. The NT CMD extensions are poorly documented in general I should say. I have used some commands to just perform some mundane tasks like joining files together, using FOR extensions & some answers to questions posed in the Winntmag forum. Feel free to download these files if you find them useful. Please leave the header of the file as is with the description & other details. This will help you to understand the code & to access my resources again if need be. If there are any bugs in the script file, questions or comments, please send an email about it.
Thank you very much!
