Multiple single point energy calculations in a single input file. Is it possible or even desirable?

Christian jB

Is it possible to construct an input file which asks for two or more single point energy calculations, e.g to find the energy for 2 different conformers, where the coordinates are known ahead of time?

More generally- I would like to calculate the energies for ~100 conformers of a molecule, all using the same basis set/level of theory.  Of course, I'd like to automate the process as much as possible and I don't really want to spend hours constructing 100 near identical input files and submitting jobs essentially by hand.  Does anyone have any suggestions for a way to streamline the process?
