    I want to merge three existing projects into a new project.

    Is there a way I can automate some or all of this using UE scripting? Or from the command line using Perl or batch?
    • open new project p1
    • copy the contents (filenames) of p2 into p1
    • copy the contents (filenames) of p3 into p1
    • copy the contents (filenames) of p4 into p1
    I'm using UltraEdit Professional Text/HEX Editor, version

      You don't need to write any script for merging just 3 projects once into a new project. The *.prj files are text files which of course can be also opened in UltraEdit and edited there.

      For each of the existing projects
      • open the project in UltraEdit,
      • open File Tree View if not already opened,
      • select tab Project if not already selected,
      • click with secondary mouse button (right button) on project name at top of the list,
      • click with primary mouse button (left button) on context menu item Edit Project File,
      • select all respectively select the sections you want merged in a new project file,
      • copy those sections into a new *.prj file.
      I think the sections are self explaining. It should be no problem for you to understand the data and copy the project data right into a new project file. Once the new project is created completely, open this new project with merged data.
