How can we give a dynamic name to the exported file through Data loader CLI. Currently the exported file is getting overridden whenever I run the .bat file and its name is hard-coded which I have given in my xml file , but I want the name to be dynamic for example it can say "fileName + today's date" .

So , is it possible not to overwrite the file downloaded and create a new file every time and also , have the name of the file appended by today's date .
