I post here a very basic script which I use to extract data from some given (stress given) praat data.
It runs on files, folders (directories) and it can accumulate data. It has options to save in in different formats, even if just 2 now with some little controls on the output. It can be scripted for large amount of data.
For new comers praat is a linguistic tool more at praat. (you can try also praat.org which links back here).
I needed a simple script to quickly change the input data for the command line execution. The interesting part is at the end. It is an initial script to handle big data.
So this is a first attempt (lets call the script: run_praat.sh):
