Options
Option Param Description
-i --ignore Ignore non existing source files without warning.
-H --no-header Suppress the syntax information section in LE text files.
-B --brief Suppress cross reference comments.
-X --export Enable the export mode and create small and machine readable text files for easy post processing.
--no-echo Suppress output of @ECHO commands while scanning text files.
-d --dest path Define a destination path (directory/file). The destination - means: write to standard output.

The path may contain escape sequences: %Q is replaced by the fully qualified source name. %P and %F are replaced by the source path or by the filename. %N and %E are replaced by source filename without extension or by the source extension. Finally, %T is replaced by the default extension of the destination format.

A '?' direct behind '%' in %E and %T conversions avoid that the same extension is used twice in row.

-D --DEST path Like --dest, but create the directory path automatically.
-E --esc char Define an alternative escape character for destination files. The default is '%'. For Windows batch files it is a good choice to set '-E$'.
-o --overwrite Overwrite already existing files without warning and ignore option --number.
--number If a file already exist, append a number directly before the file extension to make the filename unique. If other numbered files already exist (ignoring case), use the maximum existing index+1. --num is a short cut.
-r --remove-dest Remove already existing files before creating it. If set, --overwrite is ignored. --rm-dest is a short cut.
-u --update Update only existing files and don't create new files. If set, --overwrite and --remove-dest are ignored.
-p --preserve Preserve file times (atime+mtime) while converting or copying files.
