Floppy disk Weapon of mass... extraction...

Is there a fast way, to extract some massive amount of lzx archive files?
I mean i use the following on my winxp:

1. get all files in one (not very deep) folder - UNLZX.exe & the archives
2. run ms-dos mode (in winxp)
3. 'get' to the above folder
4. type (or drag & drop) UNLZX.EXE, push [space]
5. type the name of the archive file (or drag & drop), push [space]
6. repeat...

Well, i prefer the drag & drop option, but it's still sooooooooooo slooooooooow...

Is there a program that would recognize all the files in the folder and extracted each of them into a seperate folder?

Boot WinUAE with your favourite Workbench ADF and use the original AmigaOS version of LZX to do it. In an AmigaDOS Shell window enter:

lzx x drive:source/path/#? drive:destination/path/

to extract all archives in one go. Drive: is the name you gave your Windows drive in WinUAE's harddrives list.

Ah, the power of the command line....

Also, you would definitely be able to do this with Directory Opus (Windows or Amiga) because of the way you can script it's operations.
