Copy list of files contained in a text file

Post by *gquiring »

I would like to read a plain text file that contains file names to copy these names to another location. Is that possible?

Use "cm_LoadSelectionFromFile" command.

"Mark" - "Load selection from file" by default.

I'm not getting it. When I tried cm_LoadSelectionFromFile c:\list.txt

It pops open a "Open" file selection box.

This command doesn't take any parameter, so you need to open the file via the Open file dialog. And, the selection takes place only in the current directory, meaning you can't have absolute paths in your text file. If you have, you should consider menu Net > FTP Download From List (despite its name, it can transfer files locally, too).

LOADSELECTION c:\list.txt
would work, but it's new in Total Commander 9.50 (currently available as a release candidate).
