I call this right click option empty-files 1.0 Laughing

It's a confusing name. All it does is create empty files in a
folder with a right click.
It might be of use for a programmer or for somebody
building a database.

i.e. A teacher has 30 students. Each student is given a number.

Create 30 files instantly, each with a unique number.
Put attendance or exam marks in the file for the student.

Empty-files version 1.1 - slight improvement

Instead of using a default text editor
I built a message window instead. It looks nicer Laughing

Is the Enter Number box for the number of empty files to create?
IOW, if I entered 30, then 30 empty appropriately named files would be created?
Also, does it check for existance of files so if one wanted to add more, the previously created files that might contain data would not get overwritten with empty files in the creation process?
Maybe change it to have a beginning and ending file number for the creation of empty files.

Yes. You should check for yourself with an empty folder to gain
confidence in the software. That how I do my testing.

That's a good suggestion that I never really thought about.

If I have time I can build that feature in. I would put an advanced
button in window for user to click and I could simply check
for the existence of such and such a file and create more from that beginning.

...But it's not a priority for me. I just wanted some empty files to
manipulate with a script. ______________________________________________________
