#
# This script hides courses so that they don't appear on the main WeBWorK page.
#
# Usage is 
#
# sh hide-courses.sh coursename
#
# where coursename can be an indidual coursename, or something with wildcards
# that will match more than one coursename.
#
# so the command
#
# sh hide-courses.sh *
#
# will hide all courses!
#
# this must be run by a user with enough priviliges to create a file in the
# course directory.r
