I have got a plenty of .txt files in a directory. The directory also contains .png and some .pdf files. I have successfully concatenated .txt files using this command :
@ECHO Off SETLOCAL for /r %%f in (*.txt) do ( echo. type "%%f" )>> output.doc GOTO :EOF
The above command was obtained from one of the online sites. This command will concatenate .txt files in alphabetical order. But i don't want it like that , i want it to be done by the date modified or created (modified is recommended). I have got a hint that the line
for /r %%f in(*.txt) do (
must be modified in order to concatenate by date.I'm new to this command line or batch scripting so i don't really know much about it. How should i do this . Thanks everyone for the answers.
Sorry for not including this question in the first time. I have got one more requirement based on another question that i asked previously(Question) i have got a batch file for concatenating .txt files and for adding two lines on top of every file (one for writing the file name without the extension and other for writing the date associated to the concatenated file).Can anyone please modify the below batch file to concatenate .txt files by the order of date-modified and to add the two lines on top of each file.
@echo off SETLOCAL for /r %%f in (*.txt) do ( echo File Name : %%~nf FOR /f %%d IN ("%%~tf") DO echo Date : %%d echo. type "%%f" ) >> output_text.doc GOTO :EOF
Every problem solved final batch file :
@echo off setlocal enableextensions disabledelayedexpansion set "root=%cd%" >"output.doc" ( for /f "tokens=1,2,*" %%a in (' robocopy "%root%\." "%root%\." *.txt /l /s /is /ts /ndl /njh /njs /nc /ns ^| sort ') do ( echo( %%~nc for /f "tokens=1-3 delims=/" %%d in ("%%a") do echo %%f/%%e/%%d type "%%~fc" ) )
