It outputs it to the screen if I run it usinig sql developer
However when I run it doing the following from the command prompt.
@echo start backup of tables
sqlplus %1/%2 @getcomments test ID C:\MYTEST
@echo end of job
@echo you done
It only outputs the following to the MYTEST file.
So maybe I can not do dbms_output.put_line in a batch? However I could do sql and save it the information.
I'm not sure what you are trying to do exactly, but it looks like you may be trying to generate a script of some sort. You can certainly call PL/SQL blocks in a script, and generate the output to a file, but you would need to run the file you generated in sqlplus, perhaps at the end of the batch file.
If you wanted to execute the contents of my t.txt after generating it, then you could add a line at the end of the sql script (after the spool off) like @&&1 to run it.

I want to run some plsql in a batch job.
And not implement a poor hack outside the database using SQL*Plus.
Create a PL/SQL procedure or package to execute the desired steps. Use a table for logging output, run times, process stats and so on. Schedule that code as a job using either DBMS_JOB, or the more sophisticated DBMS_SCHEDULER.
Minimal moving parts. No external dependencies.
