Today I was trying to generate a filename based on the current date in a batch file. After doing some searching here is what I came up with:
@For /F "tokens=2,3,4 delims=/ " %%A in ('Date /t') do @( Set Month=%%A Set Day=%%B Set Year=%%C ) @echo DAY = %Day% @echo Month = %Month% @echo Year = %Year%
This allows for me to format the date anyway I want. I didn't know that the /F command of the For loop could tokenize line output. Thats pretty cool, although there should be a little better string support for batch files.
