Batch convert entire folder

Newbie. Tried searching but unable to find what's needed.

What's the commandline entry I need to enter to convert an entire folder of files to epub?

I can do it one at a time using "ebook-convert book.pdf book.epub", but it would refuse wildcards eg *.pdf.

Thanks

If you are on windows you can use the for command. Something like:

for %i in (*.pdf) DO ebook-convert %i %~ni.epub

You can type

for /?

to get the full docs.
