Using TYPE to create and edit text files
TYPE is a command that can output the contents of a text file. The output of TYPE can then be used to modify other files, which can be used in batch files.
To display the contents of a text file (Old.bat) with TYPE:
TYPE Old.bat MORE
To create a copy of a file (Old.bat) to or overwrite an existing (New.bat):
TYPE Old.bat > New.bat
To append the contents of one file (Old.bat) to another file (New.bat):
TYPE Old.bat >> New.bat
To create an empty file:
TYPE nul > New.bat
Remember though that it will only work with text-files, not with binary files.
