RE: [ProgSoc] DOS Batch file

Try this:

@nospam.echo off
if %1## == ## goto arg_error
if %2## == ## goto arg_error

for /F %%a in (%1) do move %%a %2
goto end

:arg_error
echo Usage: fp.bat input_file dest_dir

:end

... where fp.bat is the name of the batch file. I tested this with a text
file containing the names of three files, one to a line, and it worked fine.
