Text file contains data in the vertical form
Need batch script to convert to following
@echo off setlocal enableextensions disabledelayedexpansion set "first=1" <nul ( for /f "usebackq delims=" %%a in ("input.txt") do ( if defined first (set /p ".=%%a" & set "first=") else (set /p ".=,%%a") ) ) >"output.txt"
For each input line, if it is the first, output the line without a line feed, else output a command and the line, also without a line feed.
To supress a line feed,
set /p ".=textToOutput" is used, but as we are redirecting the input stream to read from
nul, it will not pause for input but echo the prompt without a line feed and continue.
All the output from the
for loop is sent to the target file
