[snip] 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. [/snip] Frank, what are you working with for your scripting language...is it PHP? If so numerous folks have developed many methods/classes for working with .htaccess files from a web/PHP interface. See (watch wrap) http://www.phpclasses.org/search.html?words=htaccess&go_search=1 HTH!
