viktor:

If you're on a unix box, then you can glue files together like this:

generatefile foo cat foo >>the_big_file generatefile foo cat foo >>the_big_file

So you can use the same trick in your script. If you're on DOS, there's a similar trick using copy, but you'll have to read the help page on it, as I don't recall it well.

When your only tool is a hammer, all problems look like your thumb.
