|well, the suggestion i have is to paste the script into a batchfile instead of commandline, so you have more control|
(echos, pauses, etc).
maybe try a reversed rendition of Razors script (it should work either way, i think, but like Razor said, the FOR /R is not always intuitive in its behavior).
@echo off & setlocal
:first, make sure the dest directory exists!
md c:\selection 2>nul
for /r %%a in (.) do (
for /f %%b in (c:\list.txt) do (
copy "%%b" c:\Selection
past this into a script, not to the commandprompt:
select from "@echo off" down to the final parenthesis,
alt-f and save the script as:
then at commandprompt:
i left the output from copy going to the screen, so it will look ugly, but just let it run and see what you get in c:\selection.
i have a feeling this is not the best way to go about this - it has to scan the list for each subirectory in the whole tree from root f:\images, but it appears you won't be running more than once anyhow. the other way is for each element in list, go throught the whole tree...
follow up with a post to let us know what transpired...
