Hi Andreas,

Your Star Basic macro looks very interesting. It is not super complex (initialization, a loop, 
and a super simple supporting function). Has anyone given it a test drive?

As I read the macro, the while loop looks suspect. Isn't it testing the length of a directory 
name [ dir("path/file.ext") ] instead of a file name? And, won't it operate on no more than one 
entity? I thought the idea was to automatically open zero or more office document files when 
soffice starts running.

It also could probably be made more robust by adding a supporting function that validates the 
file's extension. Just a thought.

File name extensions are meaningless. LibreOffice tries to open any file
regardless of its extension. Rename a file to .xyz and open with
My code should have an error handler for unsupported (possibly broken)
files so the loop can continue in case of any error. That's it.
