    Any windows greppers around?

    Bored???

    How about writing a .bat file to take a iterate over a list of Scratch files held inside filelist.txt

    Code:
    john.sb
    amy.sb
    ...

    and use this
    Code:
    <p><applet width="482" height="387" id="ProjectApplet" archive="ScratchApplet.jar" codebase="http://www.somewhere.sch.uk/images/stories/humpty" code="ScratchApplet" style="display: block" title="Java"><param name="project" value="Humpty.sb" /></applet></p>
    and replace Humpty.sb with john.sb amy.sb etc and give me one file with them all in so I can just upload the code onto a website.

    'nixers welcome to join in just to show how easy it is (and how clever they are )

    Powershell for you Si!

    Code:
    $myFile = Get-Content c:\temp\myFile.txt
    $out = ""
    foreach ($line in $myFile){
        $out = $out + '<p><applet width="482" height="387" id="ProjectApplet" archive="ScratchApplet.jar" codebase="http://www.somewhere.sch.uk/images/stories/' + $line + '" code="ScratchApplet" style="display: block" title="Java"><param name="project" value="' + $line + '" /></applet></p>'
    }
    $out | out-file c:\temp\myNewFile.txt

    Code:
    strstart = "<p><applet width='482' height='387' id='ProjectApplet' archive='ScratchApplet.jar' codebase='http://www.somewhere.sch.uk/images/stories/humpty' code='ScratchApplet' style='display: block' title='Java'><param name='project' value='"
    strend= "' /></applet></p>"
    Const ForAppending = 8
    Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
    Set objTextFile = objFSO.OpenTextFile("c:\output.txt", ForAppending, True)
    Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject") 
    Set listFile = fso.OpenTextFile("filelist.txt") 
    do while not listFile.AtEndOfStream  
        fName =  listFile.ReadLine() 
        objTextFile.WriteLine(fName + ".txt") 
    loop 
    objTextFile.Close
    This as a vbs should work, I'd test it first though as I just chucked it together in notepad and have not tested it at all.

    This should work on Windows 98

    Code:
    for /F "tokens=*" %%A in (myfile.txt) do @echo ^<p^>^<applet width="482" height="387" id="ProjectApplet" archive="ScratchApplet.jar" codebase="http://www.somewhere.sch.uk/images/stories/%%A" code="ScratchApplet" style="display: block" title="Java"^>^<param name="project" value="%%A" /^>^</applet^>^</p^> >>myNewfile.txt

    @SimpleSi. Your HTML code is obsolete too.

    Code:
    <!DOCTYPE html><html lang="en"><meta charset=UTF-8>
    <object tabindex="0" type="application/x-java-applet" width="482" height="387">
      <!--Generic parameters for all Java applets. -->
      <param name="codebase" value="http://www.somewhere.sch.uk/images/stories/humpty" >
      <param name="archive"  value="ScratchApplet.jar" >
      <param name="code"     value="ScratchApplet" >
      <!--Specific parameters. -->
      <param name="project"  value="Humpty.sb" >
      Your browser needs Java to view projects.
    </object>
