comment BAT file to extract folder name from a file name & move the file into that folder
Well obviously I was not denying that the for statements have a body. I think you misunderstood me if you thought I was.

You write "the inner loop" <--- it tokenizes a string but I guess there's no iteration there in that inner for statement, in which case, i'd think the inner for statement isn't much of a loop. Though technically I think you're right it's a loop, but because it could potentially deal with multiple items

comment BAT file to extract folder name from a file name & move the file into that folder
that is very good but i'd give an explanatory comment to help in reading the thing, that where you write %%~dpa%%i In the %%~dpa part the 'a' is a variable and d and p are codes. And the reader should know that the %~ or %%~ codes don't(as far as I can tell) ever end in %, So the reader should look at what is %%~dpa then what is %%i There is a code 'a' e.g. %~a1 which displays a file's attributes. So just clarifying that your 'a' is the variable a. Sometimes things get so complex with batch I have to echo and run it to figure it out even things about the language! Good stuff

@Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 probably he misunderstood what was going on in this rather recent question superuser.com/questions/912102/…

you write "PS: is this sort of question allowed here? If not, which stackExchange site should I go for?" <-- well, there is this SE site softwarerecs.stackexchange.com

comment Passwordless ssh for non-root user in Docker
Worth trying ssh -i /home/mark/.ssh/id_rsa... (or whatever path it is) to see if it even allows you to use mark's key and whether it works when doing that. Also, (forgetting -i) see if there is a file ~/.ssh/config if so if it has anything in it. And see if there is a line IdentityFile ____ in /etc/ssh_config that might be specifying root's key. And as a test try renaming root's key see what it does then!

comment Windows 7 cmd paths are different
any idea where each command prompt is inheriting its path from such that they differ like that?

comment Windows 7 cmd paths are different
-1 you have left this question hanging and ignored the suggested things to test. It is quite possible that this has nothing to do with the PATH, in which case not only have you left the question hanging (thus lowering its value) but your title is then wrong too. You have not even tested to see if the PATHs are really different.

@oldmud0 i'm aware of that. But do you realize what you posted is wrong?

comment Windows 7 Proxy
I have heard of people editing HTTP, like Fiddler, I don't know if that can be done in real time.. And i've heard of network sed which I think works with a rule. I'm sure most of the time you can't do things in real time it'd require somebody like robocop

comment Windows 7 Proxy
Wireshark isn't a proxy but can sit at the computer and capture all traffic so including SSL and DNS.. But can't edit it.. I am not sure re editting or SSL decrypt / MITM.

comment Windows 7 cmd paths are different
To just say like a rule "After you change the path, you need to make sure to restart Explorer " <-- is just wrong. Not even true of his case or the case you link to. And the case you link to the guy would've had lots of explorer.exes (due to his non-default setting, that's what it does), and there'd be no need for him to close them all prior to starting a new one. And with the default setting he'd have had no problem. So either way the special case guy you link to for your example, wouldn't need to 'restart explorer'.

comment Windows 7 cmd paths are different
@oldmud0 You wrote "you need to make sure to restart Explorer " <-- that is wrong. The answer you link to was where the user had launched the cmd prompt in a very unusual way.. (and even he only needed to start an explorer process normally rather than from the program he was using, and even he didn't need to restart explorer) or he could change the non-default setting he was on. So even he didn't need to restart explorer, and he was a very special case.

comment Passwordless ssh for non-root user in Docker
I don't know though I often try ssh from windows cygwin with just one user.. But how about when you experiment with ssh -i specifying mark's key? I agree it wouldn't answer your question, though it's worth trying anyway.

comment Is there a good series of free tutorials for senior citizens who simply do not 'get' computers
He should take a class. It takes a lot of motivation to read a book and a book isn't that practical.
