I have a soils feature class that I want to clip.  I have a township feature class that I want to use as the clipping extent.  However, I want to clip soils by each township in order to find the acreage of a certain soil in each town.  Right now in ArcMap I'd have to select one township, clip out the soils, get an output.  But I have to do that 22 times.  Not a huge deal if it's a one time thing, but I need to use this functionality over and over for other stuff, so it would be nice to somehow batch clip.  There are so many posts on how to clip multiple feature classes using the same clip extent but not the other way around.  Anyone know how to do this?
