Hi, Hamish.
        If you want to paste the commands in command by command, and don't
want them running as a batch file, you can just use the standard command to
paste information. When at the command prompt, hit alt+space, e, then p. You
should have whatever is on the clipboard, if it's text, pasted into the
command window. Simply hit enter and your command should be executed. Sorry
if this isn't what you want, but if you want commands running in series,
then I think a batch file might be your best option. If you just want to
paste from the clipboard, command by command, you can use the alt+space, e,
p, keystrokes.

Hi Carl-Pieter

Whilst this would be a nice thing to have just one batch file would not be
feasible. This is because there are too many variables for the differing
models of ipods and for the number that the pc sees the Ipod on on any given
computer. If you were referring to a batch file that would work only for me
then I am happy to send you the commands that I use as I would be
interested in looking at the batch file you create.
Let me know and I can send the commands to you privately.

        Hi Hamish,
        Do you want to make a automatic procedure to install the rockbox
software onto the ipod? I'm sure that Blind perons like that. I'm blind
too. It is simple to do with a batchfile. If you can give me the commands to
execute. Then I'll make a example batch-file.

        Hi All
        I have installed Rockbox on a few Nanos for friends of mine and will
shortly be doing another batch of four or five. I was wondering if anyone
knew of a command line utility that would allow me to paste text from the
clipboard at the command prompt. this would greatly reduce the mucking
around a blind person would have to do to make sure that each of the
commands are being correctly entered at the command prompt. I will have a
look around at the weekend but if anyone can save me the time I am sure all
the blind Ipod users would be grateful if such a thing exists.
        cheers as always
        Hamish Hamish
