stand alone converter : mac script for multiple file conversion

Hi

 

I would like to convert a folder full of .fp7 files to .fmp12 and have downloaded the Stand Alone Converter and it works as documented on single files.

 

Having 50+ files I would like to do them atomatically from an OSX script (not my strong point).

 

This is what I tried without success

 

1. Copy all files for Converter to same folder as my files

2. To get the file list in a file

 

ls -1 >convert.sh --- this works great

 

3. edit the convert.sh file, remove anything I dont want converted and add "./fmdbconverter.sh " before each filename

 

4. from the command prompt

sudo ./convert.sh --- without the sudo I get permission denied

 

This gives me the error

sudo: ./convert.sh: command not found

 

 

Can anyone help me with this please ?

 

Thanks

Glenn Singleton
