Record the Parents of your objects for easy relinking later.

Additional Info: 

Sometimes we need to Unlink objects to perform certain tasks.  It can be a pain to have to relink all of them especially if there are a lot.

This Script Will Record The Parents of all the selected objects in the MaxScriptListener Bottom Window and Automate the Process of Reparenting them By assisting in the creation of a script that can be run to reparent the objects.  A script line will be created for all objects that are selected that are linked to another object.  If one of the selected objects is not linked to anything ( linked to scene root ) then a script line will not be created for that object.
