Sometimes I need to produce many equal content files with different names. For example, if I want to make several web-pages with the same design, first of all I edit a template and then duplicate it. The only thing that remains is to fill every file with a specific information.

After running the script you have to enter the number of copies (from 1 to 99). For example, if the current file is a.txt and the value entered is 13, the following files will be created: a01.txt, a02.txt, ... , a13.txt.

As usual, if you don't want to see the job progress on the screen, just delete all lines beginning with osd. - there are three of them.
