Hi,

I need to recurse through a directory and zip each file individually keeping the same file name... Ie.

1.TXT  ---> 1.ZIP
2.TXT  ---> 2.ZIP

It seems like I used to use something similiar to WZZIP -r *.TXT

You could do something like this.

@echo off

setlocal

set rootDir=%~1

if "%~1"=="" set rootDir=.

if not exist "%rootDir%" echo %~1 does not exist.&goto :EOF

pushd "%rootDir%"

for /r "%rootDir%" %%a in (*.*) do echo pkzip "%%a" "%%~na.zip"

popd

I've disabled the pkzip line by echo it out. I'm not even sure of the syntax. This should give you a good start. The batch file accepts a root directory to start in.

Good Luck,
Steve
