Default mapping multiple objects in mel

I have a bunch of cubes and I would like to write a script that does an automatic map on them. I tried this after selecting all the cubes...

string $polyBlocksArray[] = `ls -sl`;

for ($myObject in $polyBlocksArray) {

polyAutoProjection;

}

I get an error saying "Doesn't work with multiple objects selected". How would I go about getting the loop to go through them one at a time and map that way?

Many thanks in advance
Chris

Nevermind I got it, forgot to put the select command in there, heres the revised version...

string $polyBlocksArray[] = `ls -sl`;

for ($myObject in $polyBlocksArray) {

select $myObject;
polyAutoProjection;

}

Cheers, Chris
