Solved how to get a prefix in a textfile via dos bat

Specs: windows 7
I have created a text file via dos in a dos batch, and want to get text in front of each line (original directory name.

for example:

input directory names (in the textfile)

I'd like to have the following result:
blabla do 111030
blabla do 111031
blabla do 111101
blabla do 111102

Can I create this prefix somehow in the text file using a dos batch or can I create this prefix already with creating the text file using some advanced command (I just used dir /b to create the list)

✔ Best Answer
Stated there is no DOS in Windows 7 since it is a NT kernel system and what you believe to be the DOS prompt is NT system console, you can do the following

@echo off & setlocal
set prefix=blablabla
for /F "delims=" %%j in ('dir /b') do echo.%prefix% %%j>> list.txt
