i want to share some files from my server. since there are 100's of files, i need to at least make folder contents as a .txt file so i can copy and paste to make the links. any easier solution also appreciated.

If you're serving them from http, just make the index.html page for that directory a list of its contents.
Some web servers will simply list the contents of a directory if there is no home page in it.

you should be able to do something like:
dir > file.txt or ls -l >file.txt
then use sed and or awk (I forget) to magically translate the strings to hyperlinks

Something like this:

I inserted the colons in the tags to inhibit interpretation by the browser; naturally you'll want to remove them.
Which brings up another question -- do we have a FAQ somewhere that answers how to post example HTML in an HTML-enabled forum?

I usually use the < entity to start tags and let everything else sort itself out.

That's Korn shell scripting -- for some reason I just assumed you used Unix, the telltale trait being an informed awareness of what you don't know. I could have written it as a .bat, but if my friends ever saw it, I'd have to move to Oregon and open a diner.
