Create all ansi characters

Is possible create all ansi characters using a batch script?
Yes. There are several methods.
For example you need create the tab character o even the nul character.

For create any ansi character we can use a technique using makecab.

rem this will create the 0 or nul character.
genchr.cmd 9
rem this will create the 9 or tab character.

The files will have the .chr extension.
