  1. Hi cats,

    please I wonder if is there a way to build a batch that output the last modified .mxf file in a folder

    for example:

    C0001.MXF
    C0002.MXF
    ...
    C0008.MXF is the last

    --> the batch should out C0008.MXF

    thanks

    :: ----------EXAMPLE.BAT-----------
    @ECHO OFF
    FOR /F "DELIMS=" %%F IN ('DIR /B /A-D /OD /TW C:\FOLDER\c*.mxf') DO (
    SET FILE=%%F
    )
    ECHO Most recently modified file is:
    ECHO %FILE%
    ECHO %FILE% > X:\OutputPath\Results.txt
    :: ----------EXAMPLE.BAT-----------

    Hi, please I have a myfile.txt that contains:

    Code:
    "C0001.MXF" "C0002.MXF" "C0003.MXF" "C0004.MXF" "C0005.MXF" "C0006.MXF" "C0007.MXF"
    Can I isolate only the last item:

    C0007.MXF

    ? thanks

    You may have to adjust myfile.txt but you can use multiple delimiters:
    https://stackoverflow.com/questions/32690206/delims-more-then-1-character-as-delimiter

    Code:
    @echo off
        setlocal enableextensions disabledelayedexpansion
    
        for /f "delims=" %%a in (myfile.txt) do (
            set "buffer=%%a"
            setlocal enabledelayedexpansion
            (for /f "tokens=1,2,3,4,5,6,7 delims=" %%b in ("!buffer:" "=!") do (
                endlocal
                echo full line    : [%%a]
                echo first token  : [%%b]
                echo second token : [%%c]
    	    echo third token  : [%%d]
                echo fourth token : [%%e]
                echo fifth token  : [%%f]
    	    echo 6th token    : [%%g]
    	    echo Last token   : [%%h]
            )) || if "!!"=="" endlocal 
        )
