      If you have a look toward the bottom of the
      FOR /?
      help output you will see all the variables that you can use, similar to
      the %~tX variable that provides the file date/time, and which is the
      variable that is parsed in this batch file.

      A dir /b is used to get the list of filenames to be processed.

      Thanks for the feedback.
