Numlist.btm is used to create a numbered list template in a file. Its main use is for repetitive commands or lines of HTML code involving numeric sequences, or sequentially numbered files. After the template is created, replace zzz<space> with one set of text and <space>xxx with another.

Usage: numlist start_number end_number output_filename

Example use

For example, numlist 10 14 tempname.bat will create the following:

zzz 10 xxx
zzz 11 xxx
zzz 12 xxx
zzz 13 xxx
zzz 14 xxx

Then replace "zzz<space>" with "Copy sample.html Chapter_" and "<space>xxx" with ".html":

Copy sample.html Chapter_10.html
Copy sample.html Chapter_11.html
Copy sample.html Chapter_12.html
Copy sample.html Chapter_13.html
Copy sample.html Chapter_14.html
