I'm afraid that either I don't understand what you're doing, or there
are mistakes here.  If you don't have an input file, why flush?  It seems
that you'd want to fetch.

I don't know about you, but I get errors from time to time.  This script,
called from the for loop in the previous one, is a recipe for disaster
because it can cause data to become lost if the rc564 -flush fails.

Writing DOS batch files is not my strong point; but if you care to
download and run Unix utilities for DOS I can assist with a bash
