Connecting multiple paths end to end

Hi there!

 

Question: Suppose I have multiple (say 500) open paths in illustrator that I would like to connect end to end. Normally for just two paths I'd select their end points and click "join," but is there a way to batch perform this process if I have the paths in sequence in the same layer? It seems like this could be scripted.

 

Thanks for any help!

Aaaaaand sure enough--thanks! I'm so used to getting the "you must have the end points of a path selected" that I didn't even try that. D'oh.
