Default Hpw to run cfx5solve in batch

I have a lot of .def file waiting to be solve. If I wait for each of run to finish then it will take a very long time for me to finish my analysis. Is there any way I can automate the run such that it will start solving the next .def file after finishing with previous .def file ? Could anyone advise me and if possible give an example for this.

On NT write a batch file. On unix write a shell script. It's that easy. Just pick up a book on shell for UNIX or batch files on NT.

A make file? Wow, that sounds sort of odd. Make is used for compiling programs. It should be as easy as
adding something like:

cfx5solve -def myfile1.def
cfx5solve -def myfile2.def

etc... to a shell or batch file and that's it (you don't need the #!/bin/sh for a NT batch file). Both shell and batch support simple looping structures and conditional checks if you need to do that. You might also need additional switches if you are doing restarts or running parallel.
