dirsplit - splits directory into multiple with equal size
< directory | content-list-file >
displit is designed to for a simple purpose: convert a directory with
many multiple files (which are all smaller than a certain medium, eg.
DVD) and "splits" it into "volumes", looking for the optimal order to
get the best space/medium-number efficiency.
The actual action is either adding the files to mkisofs catalogs or real
moving of files into new directories (or creating links/symlinks).
The method is not limited to files, whole directories can also be handled this
way (see various filesystem exploration modes).
- Run dirsplit -h to get the basic usage info.
- Run dirsplit -H to get the whole option overview and description.
Run dirsplit -H
