Default Trying to build a "create regions between markers" action

I have a long, continuous piece of music that I want to break up into tracks. I want to drop markers where I want tracks to stop and start, then automatically create regions between them. Is there an action that does this, or one I can build myself?

When u have SWS extensions installed, then you have this Action:
"SWS: Convert markers to regions"

Sufficient enough or .. ?

Splitting large concert to numbered regions with song name:
1. Insert markers with song name to starting position of each song you want to render
2. If there is some unwanted material, insert markers without name to the starting position of each portion of unwanted material, typically at the end of song
3. Use script to add regions
4. Render songs using region wildcards

=====
5. Download script "Named_Markers_to_Regions.lua" into folder of your choice (..\reaper\scripts\)
6. Load script into Reaper/Actions, add keyboard shortcut of your choice (Alt-F7)

There's also "Insert regions at markers and vice versa in time selection" in the ReaTeam Scripts repository which keeps the initial markers, affects only the time selection and works in both directions.

Thanks for maintaining scripts in repository. Tons of useful and interesting things.

I would be happy if there was my script included. It differentiates between named and unnamed markers. Creates regions from named markers only, giving them consecutive numbering.
