In this example, this should work.

Code: Select all

copy /b C:\a.* D:\

My question is why do you want that?

Only way I can see to do it is with a FOR command.
for /F "tokens=*" %G in ('dir /a-d /b C:\a.txt C:\a.jpg') do copy %G D:\

He doesn't want to use the for command, Squashman.

The solution is very simple - and it seems to me like it is a question from an academic course.

I suppose you could do this as well.
copy a.txt T:\ & copy a.jpg T:\

Yeah. Maybe you should let him think for himself for such an elementary answer.
