windows – How to list all files in directory/subdirectory without path name CMD? – Stack Overflow

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/07/30

I needed all .dproj files in all subdirectories, but only their filenames without any directory names.

With directory names, this is easy:

dir /s /b *.dproj

The answers at [WayBack] windows – How to list all files in directory/subdirectory without path name CMD? – Stack Overflow give the below kind of output.

[WayBack] forfiles embeds all filenames within quotes:

forfiles /m *.dproj /s


A more convoluted [WayBack] for loop gives them without quotes where n stands for name and x for extension including .:

for /r %a in (*.dproj) do @echo %~nxa

sosumi – because letitbeep was too obvious – apple Macintosh history

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/07/30

Back in the days, Apple and The Beatles were in a heated fight as Apple was not supposed to do anything resembling music in their systems.

So when sounds needed to be made, they could not be named by words having to do with music.

The legal team in Apple – known for lack of humor – was scrutinizing sources and documents on names that would be inappropriate.

Jim Reekes came up with letitbeep for one of the warning sounds, but that was too obvious, so he said sosumi, pretended it to be a Japanese word and named the sound just like that.

I learned from it through one of the RetroMacCast videos below. Then I found the page Sosumi – Wikipedia. So I guess I’ll be never to old to learn (:
