There's no one special way to do this. Personally, I'd probably write a program in REXX and handle all of the specifics wthin it. Not knowing your system, what constraints you have to work within, what standards you have to follow, what utilities and languages you have to use, it's difficult to provide much more of an answer. I'd like to know what you've tried, or what you think you'd like to try, and using what programs/utilities, before I can provide some basis of an idea.
