Re: For Loop: Iteratively add strings to a variable

Solution is:

First Loop to empty "filesToMerge" variable for every folder

Code: Select all

set "filesToMerge="
second loop add the new filepath to the variable "filesToMerge" without overwriting existing content

Code: Select all

set "filesToMerge=!filesToMerge! -O %%F"

Re: Get Parent Directory as a variable

The full code is in my first post. It is the last code block. I tried to use delayed expansion but it didn't work either... I guess I'm doing something wrong, but unfortunately I don't have time for this until the weekend. I'll try to work out a minimal working code snipped so you guys can try this ...

Dear Forum, as I stated in my other post : https://www.dostips.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=9116 I'm trying to process files in many sub folders.

Re: Get Parent Directory as a variable

Thank you for your tip, but I thought I already did found a solution to get the parent of an folder: for %%i in (%%CD%%) DO set a=%%~ni So my question remains: how do I pass the variable "a" to the next line? echo -SAVE_CLOUDS ALL_AT_ONCE FILE: "C:\04_merged\%%a" I tried "SetLocal EnableDelayedExpan...

Re: SET variable and MKDIR in one line? Automate a process

Dear Phil,

thank you again for your time! Most appreciated!

This is working perfectly, although I must admit, that I have some trouble to understand the changes you made.
Somehow CMD language has a quite steep learning curve, at least for me.

Re: SET variable and MKDIR in one line? Automate a process

Re: SET variable and MKDIR in one line? Automate a process

Well after trying to change the code a little I encountered a different problem. It seems like that the vertices are stored not individually but in one variable, so %* looks like the following: x1,y1,x2,y2...x6,y6 - so the commas (delimiters are stored as well). But cloud compare needs them to be de...

Re: SET variable and MKDIR in one line? Automate a process

Dear Phil, the script is doing nearly what I want. But it seems that the script is taking the ID as the file name. But filename and ID are different things. The ID is the "name" of the cropped area, the filename after cropping should stay the same. Let me try to explain in more detail: In the folder...

Re: SET variable and MKDIR in one line? Automate a process

Dear Phil, I have to admit - I had to read the text five times to understand what you want. Now I'm behind it. I'm sorry for the confusion. English is not my native language, but I'm happy that you got what I want to achieve. I hoped, that the pseudocode would explain the most part of what I want to...

SET variable and MKDIR in one line? Automate a process

Dear Forum, I'm in need of some help with a command line I use to crop point cloud data. The software I want to use provides a very good command line mode (CloudCompare). So I wrote a little CMD one liner which is almost doing everything I want, but now I want to automate this process. First I'm goi...
