dirsplit – splits directory into multiple with equal size


dirsplit [options] < 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 han‐
dled this way (see various filesystem exploration modes).
