Loops are actually quite easy, once you remember a few rules..

try someting in the format:

for x in $LISTOFVALUES
do
[ACTION TO PERFORM];
[ANY OTHER STUFF];
done;

and if you put my previous script into the middle of the loop and took the input filenames from $x you should have no trouble at all...

fair enough then, you could do it with one script, but another option is to write a script to call the first one.

Just use a variable loop to set the values of both.

it sounds a little like a homework Q, but if you want to post some code, I'll certainly have a look at it.........

another thing you never mentioned that makes a difference, are the files needed to be given a new name, or is it ok to replace with the stripped files?

what shell are you using? bash? csh?
if it is Bash, may I suggest you go to:


http://www.linuxnewbie.org/nhf/intel...ashscript.html

There they give a good account on how to write scripts, in particular the page http://www.linuxnewbie.org/nhf/intel...shscript2.html should have what you need.

If you have a go and post what you CAN do on here, then I will be able to help you more as I will have a better example of what you are trying to do exactly....

and unfortunatly, my experiences are the other way round, I have used BASH exclusivly, so I do not know the differences Smilie

however, as far as I know, there should not be too much of a difference, but I am sure that some of the stuff on those pages should help.
