Batch Build List

Purpose

Parameters

List of files

Remarks

Many processing functions require the use of image lists for processing. These lists are saved in a "list file". This Batch Build List utility can be used to easily create such a list file from within a batch file. The first parameter is the name of the list file to save the filenames in and will be used for processing. The second parameter is a list of comma-separated filenames to be included in the list, along with column and row headings.

Sample filename list:
