Reminder: For loop on the commandprompt

I always forget how to loop through a set of files on the command prompt. For this reason I’m blogging this as a reminder for future reference. 

FOR %A IN (*.txt) DO ECHO %a

In a batch/command file the % character needs to be escaped with an additional %.

FOR %%A IN (%1) DO ECHO %a
