Medusa NG to Medusa 4

Hi all

I feel a little silly having to ask this...but I can't figure out how to do it....

How do I do a batch convert of my medusa ng files to Medusa 4. I tried using medutil on a unix machine but it seems to only let me select one file at a time. I try doing *.SHE and it just gives an error saying it doesn't know of the file.

Does anyone know of the way to do this? Either on a pc or unix machine.

Many thanks,
Laura.

Solution for a PC

Put all the files to be converted into a directory
In DOS (Windows command window) attatch to that directory and type
dir /S/B *.she > C:\ss

This creates a file called ss directly at the root of C drive on the PC containing a list of all the files in the directory

Next open medusa utilities and type
Convert -from medusa -to med4 -options c:\ss

Have converted 20,000+ drawings this way
Should be able to do the same using the Unix ls command and redirecting the output to a file
