There really isn't an easy way to do it. This works in a .bat file:

for %%* in (.) do @echo %%~n*

that's fantastic (of course, * can be replaced with a letter), out of interest, howcome you used * ? btw, FWIW for any that don't know, # and ? work too. %%? and %%# –  barlop Dec 20 '11 at 14:44
I didn't want to use something like "x" (or another letter) because I didn't want the original poster to get confused at the "~nx" part. But you're right, you could substitute any letter there. Coding in DOS .bat is so archaic that it's sometimes difficult to see what's going on. –  BryceAtNetwork23 Dec 20 '11 at 15:03
