Dick Margulis <margulis -at- fiam -dot- net> provides part of the process for automation,
but leaves one mind-numbing step un-automated. Is there a solution to this part?

Actually, I print postscript directly to the watched folder, but same

But here's the mind-numbing part: Windows prompts for the
filenames for each of the postscript files! I would like to keep the
same filename (just have the PS or even PRN extension). Does
anyone know of how to automate this bit?
