Script Alias and Zone Creation on Brocade 48K Switches

I have 4 new Brocade 48K switches with 80 new servers, and some storage arrays to be attached to them. I would like to know how I can create a script/batch file to create the zones and aliases. I already have the "alicreate," and "zonecreate" commands in an excel spreadsheet for all the servers and storage. Just need to know how to put it on the switch.

Thanks!

Since this API Tool Kit is not available yet, does this mean there is no way currently to create all of these zones and aliases via script or batch?

It's just a telnet interface. You could either cut-and-paste chunks of the commands, or a program could read the command list, telnet a command to the switch, wait for the switch prompt, and repeat until done. Then commit.
(I had a perl script that did that, once upon a time....)
