I practically solve the problem by using windows powershell but still not have many commands for many files.

The example I see is
ordo-win32.exe -a 2834 -A "Naum 4.2" -W -p games.pgn -o rating.txt
I added the following line:
ordo-win32.exe -a 500 -A "Obsidian 11.0 512 nodes" -W -p ligaw1.pgn ligaw2.pgn ligaw3.pgn ligaw4.pgn -o rating1.txt
...

You need to overwrite the example line!

Interesting discussion at that link. Ultimately, the win/lose distribution will need to be skewed at the top end, which probably implies the use of a mathematical function rather than a statistical distribution. Consider tic tac toe:

A strong player will often beat a weak player, but at a certain level of skill (which doesn't take long to attain in this game), one becomes impossible to beat.

The same is almost certainly true in chess (though the "impossible to beat" level is much more difficult to attain), so a really good rating system would be skewed at the top end, and have an upper limit.
The simple reveals itself after the complex has been exhausted.

So let me get this straight, you entered a competition to find a better alternative to Elo, but you dind't know how to get a rating list out of Ordo?

There is no conradiction.
The tasks are different tasks.

Finding better alternative to elo is about thinking about mathematics model(I studied mathematics at university when I was young) when knowing what to do with erdo is technical stuff.

It is correct that I need also some technical stuff for programming and for participating but I got help with it in the past mainly from Dann Corbit.
Mathematical algorithm to write the code is of me and not of other people.

Note also is that it is not that I knew nothing about programming and even before Dann Corbit helped me I did some programming of different tasks but it was mainly about calculations when I did not need to read data from external source(I used if then else and I used loops)
