Have a file with integers delimited by a space like
10 11 13 14 15 17 18 19 31 41 42 51
53 54 56 59 60 ....

Can and how the numbers be looped? something like
 
for ....%%A ....   do (
...
 @echo %%A
...
)

where %%A is one of the numbers. It loops all numbers. May not be in this way. Gurus, any tips will greatly appreciated.

If you just want each number one by one try this in a BAT file:

@echo off
for /F "tokens=*" %%A in (c:\ee\EE26833047\EE26833047.txt) do (
  for %%B in (%%A) do (
    echo %%B
  )
)
