upload all the files in a folder to a website one at a time

I am trying to write a script using the selenium IDE
I want to upload all the files in a folder to a website one at a time
I am trying to set it up so i only have to run this script each time i have to upload a batch

/Users/me/Desktop/files
Has a bunch of files in it

Basically I need an array with each element in it referring to the absolute file path of each of the files contained in
/Users/me/Desktop/files
Then it opens the webpage and uploads the value of the next element in the array
Hits a submit button
Then repeats the process until all the elements/files have been handled

This is what i have so far
it dose it once using a specific file

<tr>
<td>open</td>
<td>/upload.php</td>
<td></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>type</td>
<td>name=file</td>
<td>/Users/me/Desktop/files/f1</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>clickAndWait</td>
<td>css=input.btn</td>

</tr>

</tbody></table>

Im not sure if this is really what selenium was made for but it sounds like it could do what im looking for
I know a bit about programing mostly java but im out of my depth here, any help would be appreciated. Even other avenues to look into.
