hello,
This is my problem. I have a template html file and I need to make say 30,60..70 or more copies. what I do now is create 'n' copies of the template file and rename each of them in windows. Since this is manual it is very time consuming and prone to errors.

is there any other way or plugin I can use to automate the file copy and naming process. an example would be i select a file (the test file ) in a editor, select the number of copies and then type in or paste 'n' file names separated by commas.

ex:
file names arent sequential or numbered..

example file names would be
abcd.html,andhd.html,shhd.html,sdhshds.html...upto 'n'

I looked at some quick file renamers but not one has this particular facility. has anyone ever encountered such a situation and used some tool that you had which would help solve this current predicament..please let me know..
