Script to convert a directory full of files?
In the 'some people are never satisfied' category...and trying real hard not to violate forum rules...
Let's assume that I have a folder full of EBooks on my Windows desktop. They are in a format that will not work on my soon-to-arrive Sony reader.
Also assume that I have a Python script (call it 'MobiDeXXX') that will magically change them into something that I can load into Calibre and then do a batch-convert to the format Sony loves.
Is there a script (or could some genius write one) that would take this entire directory and run the magic Python script against each file, one at a time, and save the results into a different directory?
Note that I am being purely lazy here, since I can of course type in the 200 file names, one at a time, into the command window and run the Python script against them.
But if anyone can help with this, I would be most grateful!

for %%i in (*.prc) do MobiDeXXX.py %%i %%~ni_free.prc PID
Hypothetically of course. You could even get a bit more fancy and add an IF NOT EXISTS to it to only run the command if the _free file doesn't exist. I think adding an /R after the for and it will recurse directories also.
