Hey thanks Rangi. Coincidence, but I might need your script right from next week. Now I don't have to do as much research. What a true globalist you are :-) So you've completely dropped perl now? Also, does anyone know if 3dsMax runs well on Vista? I was on the lookout, but I can't find a windows XP in the stores here any longer. Do I have to run it illegaly, now that I don't want to? But if Vista runs well with Max and if it maybe has better improved integration with linux (I mean like sshfs and other fuse file systems), I might try that route then. Dries.
