Need a Script RRS feed

  • Question

  • I need a script, to run in Windows XP, that takes a line from a .txt document, in a given directory (the document name and the directory may be settled and don't need to be changed. Ex. :C:\Documents and Settings\Administrador\Os meus documentos\lines.txt). and puts it in the Clipboard. To the script must be given the line number, and it must put the specified line in the Clipboard. Afterwards (I hope) I would be able to put that line anywhere I want using Ctrl+V. (as the name of a new folder, as the name of a "Saved as file", as the "changed name" of a folder or file, as a line into a .doc or .txt document, inserted in any Web page that needs information to be filled in, etc). Any of those tasks may need to be done repeatedly, and a script like that will be usefull.  Can any one give me that script?
