[SOLVED] batch file to open multiple txt files within WinSCP ?/

I use winscp on my lynux server to view and edit multiple text files using the internal editor..

what I would like to know is :- can I make some sort of batch file that will open multiple files to save me having to open all the files one at a time

thanks

Well, you can generate the URL. But in this case, I believe it's better to refer to your saved site on the command-line, to avoid duplicating the login info:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\WinSCP\WinSCP.exe" "site_name" /edit /remote/path/file.txt

yeah that I have seen and does help but I have to log in to server every time I start new instance/file tho,,,

is there no way this type of command can be executed from within WinSCP rather than from windows command prompt ?

I didn't write that you can use the semicolon with the command-line /edit switch.

You have asked if you can open multiple files from WinSCP, instead of commandline. I've assumed that you mean WinSCP GUI. And that's what my previous post shows.
