Trying to execute the following script

FOR /F %%G IN ("Packages MNG RD") do echo %%G

Is only echoing the first parameter:


*tried to change the delims, played with tokens, but nothing helps.

Any ideas? thanks

When you're using /F and qoutes, FOR is interpreting the string as one long filename. Changing the command slightly works for me:

for %%G IN (Packages MNG RD) do echo %%G

for /f "tokens=*" %%g in ("Packages MNG RD") do echo %%g

Tokens are delimited by spaces by default. tokens=* sets every token to the variable.
