Drag and dropable scripts on NT

There are several ways to do this, here is one:

make a .bat file that says this:
   "c:\program files\python\python.exe" c:\temp\drag.py %1
use the correct path to your python.exe. replace drag.py with your
script name.

make a shortcut on your desktop that points to your .bat file.

use sys.argv[1] to get the name of the file to be acted on.

For example, this script:
import sys
a = sys.argv[1]
print a

will return the name of the file dragged onto the icon.

Hope this helps
