I'm pretty sure, that doom9 will understand these.

and cmd sucks:
- I am not aware of any nice way to "break lines".
- The "for" statement can only be used on files (not on arbitrary strings)

To keep it short, the only cmd-useable way to do this, is to send a
ready-made Batch (.bat) file, which is also a bad idea, since
readability suffers a lot.

My opinion: Leave it like it is. Doom9 will understand and the mail is
not meant as user tutorial.

One could offer to write a user-friendly version of this stuff.
But that exactly is, what Doom9 started his MeGUI-project for :)
(Or, why I started my humble MeWiG-project.... ;) )
