Batch mode example: Score Tables
Winsteps produces a Score Table in Table 20 which is for responses to every active item. You can use the Batch File feature to automate the production of Score Tables for subtests of items.
(1) Do the calibration run:
ni=3 ; these match your data file
ifile= if.txt ; item calibrations
sfile= sf.txt ; rating (or partial credit) scale structure
(2) Set up the control file for the batch run:
; This is scon.txt
title="Produce score table"
ni=3 ; match your data file
iafile = if.txt ; item anchor file
safile = sf.txt ; rating (or partial credit) scale structure anchor file
1 0 ; dummy person measures
CONVERGE=L ; only logit change is used for convergence
LCONV=0.005 ; logit change too small to appear on any report.
121.... ; two lines of dummy data - such that every item has a non-extreme score.
(3) Set up the Batch (.bat or .cmd) file and run it. Use IDFILE=* to select the items you want (or ISELECT=)
rem this is score.cmd
start /w ..\Winsteps sc.txt dummy SCOREFILE=sc001.txt batch=yes idfile=* +3 * title=item3
start /w ..\Winsteps sc.txt dummy SCOREFILE=sc010.txt batch=yes idfile=* +2 * title=item2
start /w ..\Winsteps sc.txt dummy SCOREFILE=sc100.txt batch=yes idfile=* +1 * title=item1
start /w ..\Winsteps sc.txt dummy SCOREFILE=sc011.txt batch=yes idfile=* +2 +3 * title=items23
start /w ..\Winsteps sc.txt dummy SCOREFILE=sc101.txt batch=yes idfile=* +1 +3 * title=item13
start /w ..\Winsteps sc.txt dummy SCOREFILE=sc110.txt batch=yes idfile=* +1 +2 * title=items12
start /w ..\Winsteps sc.txt dummy SCOREFILE=sc111.txt batch=yes idfile=* +1 +2 +3 * title=items123
copy sc*.txt scores.txt
(4) The Score Tables are in file scores.txt
Batch command to select one line from a file.
Save the code below as oneline.bat
c:>oneline 23 infile.txt >>outfile.txt
selects line 24
rem select one line from a file
if [%1] ==  goto usage
if [%2] ==  goto usage
for /f "skip=%1 delims=" %%a in (%2) do (
echo Usage: oneline.bat linebefore infile >>outfile

According to Wikipedia, the human body requires about 30 minerals, maybe more. There are 60 naturally-occurring minerals in the liquid Mineral Supplement which I take daily.
