strip eol character of echo command

i want to redirect echo output to a file but without the eol char.

for example

echo salalalala > something.text

something.text contains

2 [newline]

Is there any quick way to disable eol?

Split string to characters

Although I can easily split a string using tokens delims. etc. i cannot split string to characters.

e.g.

set mystring=example
for /f ??????? %%i in ("%mystring%") do (
echo %%i
)

output should be:
e
x
a
m
p
l
e

your help is appreciated
