I've got 4,913 sound file I need to trascribe onto a notepad in order to construct a library reference file…but, as one can tell, that's a fudgeload of work. Is there some way for me to simply scan a list of all these names and then copy then onto a notepad? I know DOS will read them, but I can't copy 'n past from an MS DOS prompt.
you could load all those sound files into winamp, then use winamp's generate HTML playlist feature. Then just copy all that into notepad, save and you're done.
open a command prompt. Start-run-"cmd"
cd "desired directory"
dir /w > filename
The resultant file will look like:
Volume in drive C has no label. Volume Serial Number is C4C3-5D02 Directory of C:\ aolconnfix.exe aolconnfix.txt [ATI] [Documents and Settings] foo [Graphs] hcwclear.txt [My Music] [MyVideos] [NVIDIA] [Program Files] [stlcd] [WINNT] 4 File(s) 12,872 bytes 9 Dir(s) 131,175,063,552 bytes free
That's my root directory contents. You can just trim the top and bottom off. the [names] are directories. Fiddling with format might give you something closer to what you want.
