Dear Mister Jones » How to insert a carriage return with batch

Posted by jpluimers on 2012/01/17

When appending multiple text files to a big one (for instance to post-processing on the total: dedupe, sort, gather statistics, etc) you often will find one or more of the source files missing a CRLF.

So you will have to insert those carriage return line feed combo’s manually.

Well, mr Jones points out that:

there’s actually an easy way to simply echo a carriage return and line feed instead, by just issuing an echo command followed immediately by a period (no space in between), like this:

echo. >> somefile.txt

Thanks Jared!
