I'm exploring Apache, these day, and one of the things that I want to do is to implement my .htaccess docs. It's a bit of a pain though to constantly drop into the dos prompt and type everything by hand. Can someone show me an example of a dos batch file that accepts input? Here is ultimately is an example of what I'd like to create. cd /path_to_desired_dir htpasswed -c .htpasswd username New password: INSERT_PASS_HERE Re-Type new password: INSERT_PASS_HERE adding password for user username Thanks -- Frank Marion lists at frankmarion.com Keep the signal high.
