    Although I can't write the scripts for you I will do something much
    better: I will give you an advice.When you're asking people to write
    a programme for you it helps , no make that it's necessary to
    specify exactly what you want.For example regarding request 1 you
    should give a sample of the file you want created and explain what the
    file should contain and where.

    Regarding request 2 which files do you want linked ? Or should the script
    accept as an argument the file name to be linked ? What should be the name
    of the link ?

    You get me ?

    Actually I'm feeling generous right now so I will give you a second advice:
    the way to get good at scripting is to actually practice by writing scripts.
    So why not try to write yourself some of the scripts you want ?

    I'm suspecting he is asking us to do his homework.

    I concur with Santa's second piece of advice. Have a go at writing the scripts and we'll help you sort out anything you don't understand. You have to do to learn. We did, and you're asking us for help.
