creating links without cgi or database
Posted on 1997-06-15
I am in the process of building our company Intranet, and we have
thousands of internal forms that we have finally converted into .doc's
and .xls. We also have many specialty forms stored in .gif and .jpg
All of these forms are stored in one of three folders in our intranet
server. I need to build links to all of them, but I do not want to
sit at my desk for 3 months typing in the tag ahref 7,000 times. The
forms are not in a database (although they could be).
Is there a program out there that will build links for me? We are
using frames, so a page with just links to these files on our HD's
would be great. Anyone know of a way to build thousands of links fast
with a spider or 3rd party progam??
Importing into a database is not an option right now. Either is CGI. Although we use IIS 3.0 and win-cgi can be used, we don't have the expertise on staff to write or support it. Something goes wrong..so what we need is a dynamic link creator. If files are added or removed, this program/script has to be dynamic.
