It'll multiply what you can do with your system by orders of magnitude, even after what you'd learn from a single one-week shell scripting course or "learn bash in 24 hours" kind of book. In this case, you're wanting to do something that isn't very broadly requested; a simple script could make it happen, but without it, you are stuck. Perhaps someone else will oblige you with a script, though. -- Shawn McMahon | Information may want to be free, but fiber http://www.eiv.com | optic cable wants to be one million US AIM: spmcmahonfedex, smcmahoneiv | dollars per mile.
