I tried this one:
but it didn't work, it said something like "required output parameter missing"...
then I tried the "one-line-instead-of-a-script":
for i in C:\QGIS\species_shapefiles\*.shp; do v.in.ogr dsn=$i out=`basename $i .shp`; done
but it still gave an error, apparently because the shapefiles didn't have georeferencing information and I was trying to import them to my georreferenced location, hence projection didn't match (although the maps do overlay perfectly). But it said I could add "-o" to the v.in.ogr commmand to override this projection check, so I did:
for i in C:\QGIS\species_shapefiles\*.shp; do v.in.ogr dsn=$i out=`basename $i .shp` -o; done
And it worked! Thanks guys
