Need to write a Perl script? How about a Ruby, Python, or C file?
You know it’s not a hard task per say, but do you really want to create the file, enter the standard system variables, your personalized template, and change permissions all in separate steps? You’re already on your way to typing a whole lot more, assuming you are generating this file to code your new idea off course …
So, how about just entering the file name to create an executable file that contains all your usual pragmas, imports, etc…so you can begin coding right away? Meet Scripter.
