Perhaps you're right.  I was too general in my initial query which made
it very unclear.

I want a script that allows commandline only applications that can't batch
process to batch process.  A speciifc example. I will use the app
enfuse, an exposure merging program, a poor man's HDR.

patrick@Debian9:~/Work$ enfuse --output ab01.jpg --compression=97 ab01/DSC*.jpg
patrick@Debian9:~/Work$ enfuse --output ab02.jpg --compression=97 ab02/DSC*.jpg
patrick@Debian9:~/Work$ enfuse --output ab26.jpg --compression=97 ab26/DSC*.jpg

I use shell history to repeat the command for each directory, changing the
 --output filename and target directory numbers as necessary. Each diretory already
holds the appropriate image files.
