Batch Extract path and filename from a variable

The Solution to Batch Extract path and filename from a variable is


@ECHO OFF
SETLOCAL
set file=C:\Users\l72rugschiri\Desktop\fs.cfg
FOR %%i IN ("%file%") DO (
ECHO filedrive=%%~di
ECHO filepath=%%~pi
ECHO filename=%%~ni
ECHO fileextension=%%~xi
)

Not really sure what you mean by no "function"

Obviously, change ECHO to SET to set the variables rather thon ECHOing them...

See for documentation for a full list.


ceztko's test case (for reference)

@ECHO OFF
SETLOCAL
set file="C:\Users\ l72rugschiri\Desktop\fs.cfg"
FOR /F "delims=" %%i IN ("%file%") DO (
ECHO filedrive=%%~di
ECHO filepath=%%~pi
ECHO filename=%%~ni
ECHO fileextension=%%~xi
)
