    stand alone converter : mac script for multiple file conversion




      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 ?
