Modify a .txt file with a batch file (without a text editor)

Hi programmers, here's my today goal: I would really be amused to learn how to edit a .txt file just using batch comands without using a text editor.

Re: BATCH interactions with opened .exe

Hi, thanks for the answer. So now I wonder... what level of "freedom" can I have to interact with non-bat files? For example, I know that DOS can create and edit txt files, or even edit a previously existing file. I made experiments using the following code: set /P input= echo %input% >> output.txt ...
