The following works to make an SBE check file named with the folder name, perhaps you can incorporate it and modify it for md5?

shntool len with txt file added to folder:

@echo off
%~d1 & cd %*
for %%T in (shn flac wav ape) do if exist *.%%T shntool len -u mb *.%%T >> "%~n1-shntool.txt"

The answer is essentially the same for Windows users as for *nix users such as Jazzbo, except you have to put single quotes around the curly brackets, e.g.:

'{' flac - -8 -o %f '}'

Make sure there is a space between each ' and the code before or after it inside the curly brackets.

When I want to perform a fix and compress to a non-default level of flac compression, I make a custom batch file and I create the custom file type as a variable. This makes the code a little easier to read, and I can easily cut and paste from one batch file into another for other fixes. I create a variable called 'typ' (for file type) at the beginning of the batch file like this:

set typ=cust ext=flac '{' flac -o %%f -V -8 - '}'

I then use 'typ' as my shntool file format with the -o argument, like this:

shntool fix -s r -o %typ% [input files]

You can use the 'typ' variable with any shntool command. For a straight conversion, for instance, set the typ variable as above, then use a command such as the following:

shntool conv -o %typ% *.shn

Thnx for this, uhclem. I tried the same on ape files but failed. One of the lines I tested was
shntool fix -s b -o cust ext=ape '{' mac %f -c4000 '}' "Test 01.ape" "Test 02.ape" "Test 03.ape"
Only some useless warnings / error messages showed up ("make sure that there is enough disk space + the specified output directory exists" and stuff like that). Can you give me a helping hand pls?

Re: Batch Files - "How to" + Recipes (add 'em if you got 'em!)

You didn't specify an input file inside the curly brackets. When working with a custom format the input should always be 'standard in' which is signified simply by a dash, '-'

So try this inside the curlys and let me know if it works:

mac - %f -c4000
