Concatenate the layers of multiple project XML files
To create a script with the above code, copy paste it into a file with an underscore in its name and extension ".py". Then place it in Fiji's plugins folder or subfolder thereof. Finally, restart Fiji or just call "Plugins - Scripting - Refresh Jython Scripts".
=== Concatenating multiple project XML files by copying all their layers ===
<source lang="python">
# Albert Cardona 2010-06-30 for JC Rah
# Takes a list of project XML files
# and grabs all layers in order
# and clones each and all its images
# and then adds it to a newly created project named "all_layers.xml"
