COPY command it will be a pain for a clip.
REM > SEEDFILE.TMP
COPY SEEDFILE.TMP+*.TXT+*.EXT HUGEFILE.TXT
or something along those lines work?
This batch creates a zero length temporary seed file, to which all files with
extensions .TXT and .EXT are added and placed in a new file called HUGEFILE.TXT.
The seed file is then deleted, leaving the original files, the batch file itself
and the new "huge" concatenated file.
You may only need "*.*" where I put "*.TXT+*.EXT". Unless your naming
conventions are very weird, with the aid of the DOS wildcards ? and * you ought
to be able to come up with a pattern that achieves what you want.
And if you right-click the batch name in MY COMPUTER, select the PROGRAM tab and
check the "Close on Exit" box, this will produce a Shortcut which you can move
to wherever you like and the whole process will run virtually invisibly, when
you click on the shortcut.

i can't remember why i was using the command without wildcard help.
But it works!
