Hello I need a batch file to store in a variable all paths of all directories/subdirectories named ".svn" that I can found in my_folder.
FOR /r my_folder %%X IN (.svn) DO (ECHO %%X)
the command above prints them to screen, but I need to store them in a variable as a list of strings. Someone knows how to do it?
This is the site I use for helping myself with batch files: http://ss64.com/nt/
After I want to pass the value of such variable to the command
RD in order to delete them along with this subfolders/files.
So let's say the variable is names
$a i will do something like:
RD /s /q $a
The simplest solution without any variables is to issue the
RD command inside your
FOR loop. You can use multiple commands inside the braces like:
@ECHO OFF FOR /r my_folder %%X IN (.svn) DO ( ECHO %%X RD /s /q %%X )
If yo need the to add the pathes to a variable you can do it like that:
@ECHO OFF SET PATH_LIST= SETLOCAL ENABLEDELAYEDEXPANSION FOR /r my_folder %%X IN (.svn) DO ( ECHO %%X SET PATH_LIST=!PATH_LIST! "%%X" ) ENDLOCAL RD /s /q %PATH_LIST%
But keep in mind that environment variables are limited in size. In Windows XP a single variable can hold a max. of 8,192 bytes.
