Does adding files to the same directory it's reading from change how the
"for files in" function works?

I've not figured out how to do multi-line commands at the command line.

Yes it does.  But I'm not a Windows (nor DOS) person, by the way.  ;-)

selector gadgets for batch work.  There are times where it's damn near
impossible to select the files you want out of a directory by name
matching rules.
