batch operations in fontlab

Quick question, is there a way to select multiple glyphs and batch convert to lines? Or do I have to open each individual glyph in an editing panal, select it, right click, go to convert, select lines, then go on to the next glyph over and over?

In font lab you have 3 types of points. I don't know the terminology. What I do know is this. Select an outline, right-click on the outline, in the context menu there is a section with two entries "convert" and "connection" the sub-menu for convert has 3 options:
Convert -> To Curves
           To Lines
           To Off-Curve Points

Thing is, it appears you can only access these options on a per-glyph basis. That's what I mean.

Here is some Python code that will do what you're asking for:
