Write a utility that creates a "Work Area" folder, regardless of the

An interesting challenge for somebody who is good at PERL or Python
Sub onApplicationStart()
oSrv = createUnoService("")
sPath = PathConcat(oSrv.Work, "AutoStart")
sDir = PathConcat(sPath, "*.*")
s = dir(sDir)
while len(s)
      sPathName = PathConcat(sPath,s)
      StarDesktop.loadComponentFromURL(sPathName, "_blank", 0, Array())
      s = dir()
End Sub

Function PathConcat(s1, s2)
      if right(s1,1) <> "/" then s1 = s1 & "/"
      PathConcat = s1 & s2
End Function

I can't test if this script does what the OP asked for. Where should the
AutoStart folder be placed when using a Windows OS or in a Linux OS?

Would it be possible to take this effort further and evolve this script into
an extension with a point-and-click interface to select the Autostart

Maybe some other people would find this feature useful and it is probably
more likely that this can be added as an extension rather than as a new

Just my 2 cents
