I have just done something I'm very excited about. Given a directory name

through the directory for files whose names contain the student names, and

Before now, manually attaching those files has been a real pain, so it's
great to have this automated! However, sometimes the name I have on file
doesn't quite match the submitted name.
A Google Scholar search on 'personal name matching' will point you to the
literature on this subject.
You might get lucky and find something in a scripting language that Babel
supports that you can piggyback onto.
