I honestly don't remember if the basic batch file command set includes
that or not. I thought I'd seen it in the past but I did a lot with
4DOS and Take Command from JP Software and they include for loops for
sure. If you want a free solution and current win environment doesn't
work, try cygwin, the unix environment that runs on windows platforms.
