It can but is probably not as nice as youwould like.
flac -t *.flac
if errorlevel 1 goto fail
echo Danger Will Robinson! Flac files failed integrity check.
For this reason cygwin and its bash for windows does a lot more.
Notes on the batch file fragment above:
if errorlevel 1 goto
actually means if errorlevel 1 or greater
so don't try if errorlevel 0 since it will allways be the case.
(there are no negative exit codes).
:text denotes a label. we have to goto around a goto because
of the errorlevel limitation sighted above.
This method won't tell you which files passed or failed.
No there is no easy way to send standard error to a file so you can
look at it; well not under command.com anyway.
Cygwin will let you do it and there might be a wrapper utility somewhere
on the simtel repository to do it as well; I think
it is in sysutils or textutils in the msdos section.
There might be a way to cludge around all this in Windows by using Perl and getting it
to flac -t a file at a time but I honestly think
cybwin would be easier.
