a) you're running windows,
b) you can open a DOS prompt,
c) your jukebox is denoted by the drive letter J,
d) your playlist is entitled playlist.m3u, and
e) the folder "PlaylistFolder" already exists on your jukebox,

you can use the following single line:

for /f "eol=# tokens=*" %i in (playlist.m3u) do _at_copy "%i" J:\PlaylistFolder

The eol=# specification will make it ignore comment/info lines generated
by winamp, if that is the source of your playlist.

If you write the following variant into a file and save it with a .bat
extension (e.g., copylist.bat),

for /f "eol=# tokens=*" %%i in (%1) do _at_copy "%%i" J:\PlaylistFolder

you can then simply drag a playlist onto the .bat file or run it from
the command prompt, like so:

copylist.bat playlist.m3u

But I'll grant you that PERL is much cooler. =)
