Hi, I’m a newbie to applescript and I’d like some help. I often download all kinds of things from usenet that come down as split parts like abc.mpg.001, abc.mpg.002 that I have to join.
Here’s what I do now. I drag them to an empty folder, open the terminal, type cat * >filename.mpg, move the new file back to the original folder and then trash the individual parts.
What I WANT a script to do is this:
A. I select the files I want to concatenate within a folder of many files
B. I run the script
- It will ask what I want the new file to be named
- It will concatenate the highlighted files
- It will trash the individual parts upon succesful completion
Does a script like this already exist? If not, is it easily written? I’ve never written an applescript, could this be a good beginer script to write? I’m very goal based, so I’m not so much looking to learn applescript as much as I’m trying to learn how I can get it do what I want as easily as possible.
This became a long message, thanks for reading!
