My previous e-mail was just an information only.
I was not intended to propose the solution on Windows or DOS system.
Since I couldn't get good result on my Linux, I also tried to achieve 
this on Windows circumstances.
Now I'm completely happy with your solution and everything is fine if I 
can go with Linux.

Windows users may also be worth bringing cygwin to apply your scripts.

Sorry for bothering you.

Anyway, thanks a lot!
