We can do better than that, I think, and get you a script that we wrote
with Sculptor and that will do this for you. You give it a file containing
input and output filenames, in pairs, on each line. I'll see what I can do.
You probably need a special licence to run it, I'll check.
We would normally charge for writing a script like this, but since we
already have it, and since it's been a long day :-), I'll see if we can't
accidentally lose a copy... if you need it modified or need scads of help
running it, though, it's a different matter.
This will still have A/E running, but at least you should be able to go
away and leave it.
We also have other tools to do this, but since you already have Author/Editor,
there's no sense in spending money on them just for this, I think.
Mail me directly if you want it. Unix only, I think. Limited special
offer, etc etc.. :-)
