HERETIC!!! >:(

Just kidding! ;) I actually did pull off a BASH for loop:

for i in `ls *.mas`; do tidy -asxhtml -clean -i -wrap 200 $i > $i.new; + done
And then a Perl one-liner to strip off the .new ... and then i realized that tidy as a -m option to modify the file in place!

UPDATE: Why Tanktalus? Because you weren't here at the time to show me a better way. :P Thanks for the tips, guys.

    Um ... why "ls *.mas" in backticks when you can eliminate the subprocess using just "*.mas"? ;-)

    Also, your renaming ... that's what /usr/bin/rename is for: "rename .mas .html *.mas" ;-)
